Okay, I've diddled and fussed and tried one after another. Not sure if these are the final versions but do seem to be the ones I like the most.
And, here's the blurb for it:
He was indentured as a cabin boy, sailed to the far ends of the earth,
treacherously tossed overboard in a storm, washed up on an alien shore,
and wakened by a savage Majican Indian. Timothy Beadle found himself
under the spell of Father Junipero Serra and set out to explore the land
I'm still working on the blurb for this.
And remember, there are two more novels in the series.
