Apollo I


1850. The gold rush irresistibly draws caravans of pioneers to the Far West. Among these are a colossal young Greek man, Apollon Patakès, and the little French boy Basky, who have gone in search of an uncle who had disappeared. Accompanied by their pet skunk Pélagie, they settle in the village of Green Valley, which they defend against the formidable Cangaceiro, descendants of the Conquistadors, and many other unexpected threats. 

Apollo's grand-son served in the Partisans: Pacific Theater.
