This book is an English translation of Don Juan Valera's novel "Morsamor". Obscure, insignificant, and nearing death, Friar Miguel of Seville longs for the excitement of the Age of Exploration. An alchemist-priest gives Friar Miguel a potion whereby he becomes the dashing young adventurer Morsamor (death-love) who explores the globe and the heart.
