A vector of venom infects Antonio, a typical Panamanian teenager, with an illness that has far-reaching consequences. He is carried away from home and transported back in time to the early 1900s, where he unknowingly joins his grandfather on the construction of the Panama Canal.  Will Antonio escape from the past and survive the consequences of working on one of the most dangerous construction sites in history?

Spannend relaas van 2 jonge jongens, die als emigranten werken aan het Panamakanaal. Door de koortsdromen van Antonio wordt je meteen het verhaal binnengezogen: van het heden naar het verleden en weer terug.
Het woord "Vector "staat ook gewoon in een Nederlands Woordenboek.
