William Ruffin of Rouen, France, was 16 years old in 1562 when he sailed for the New World. This story is based on theevents of his adventures as documented by both French and Spanish eyewitness chroniclers. Because French Protestants(called Huguenots) were persecuted in France, they hoped to find gold in the New World and with it buy the King's favor.

In order to avoid the Spanish who owned so much of America, they landed north of Florida, on thecoast of South Carolina. They hastily built a fort and left 27 volunteers there, William among them. Outside the fort the country was beautiful. William soon made friends in the Indian village and learned some of their language. But inside the fort things went so badly that violence exploded, William had to flee, was found wounded by his Indian friends, and would never return. He settled down to life and marriage in the Indian village until the day that Spanish soldiers arrived and insisted on taking William with them to Florida to prove that yes, the French were trying to invade land that belonged to Spain.
