Secret Of The Medallions Story Detail
Gomez gives the order to head for the High Peak, but the soldiers are reluctant, since the High Peak is a forbidden area reputed to be haunted by evil spirits. Mendoza, with Pedro and Sancho in tow, arrives to offer his services as a guide. The children and their two new companions, trek through a forest, narrowly escape capture by Gomez and Gaspard when Esteban wanders off to chase butterflies, and finally climb a mountain to the Fort of the Black Eagle. There the children are introduced to Yupani, the Fort's Chief. Gaspard wants to storm the Fort, but Mendoza advises against attacking an enemy of unknown strength. The three sailors approach the fort. Esteban begs Yupani not to hurt them, so his men only fire warning shots to frighten them off- but not before Mendoza hints that Gomez will stage a night attack. Tao devises a parachute flare launched by a catapult, to light up the area so the Fort's defenders can see the Europeans attacking. Pelted with rocks and arrows, the Europeans are forced to retreat. At dawn the children are led along a mountain trail, over a bridge and behind a waterfall, to the City of the High Peak. There they meet the city's Chief, Kraka, who recognizes Esteban's and Zia's medallions as the keys to the Cities of Gold.
