The text below is taken from a description by TSR on the reverse of the actual product:

'Somewhere in the True World, to the north of the lands you know, lies the City of Gold: Michaca. It is a city of legend, of fable, and of wonder. The journey is hard, and the perils are many; you know, however, that the rewards will far outshine any treasures you have ever seen.
This supplement for the Maztica Campaign Setting is a new type of product: a combination adventure and accessory. In this booklet you will find information on a new character race, the Azuposi; on new character classes for rogues, including the clown (or koyemshis); on new priest classes, including the "bent priest"; and a new magic unique to Maztica, fetishism.
The adventure itself leads your party from the known areas of the Ture World into the northlands, through the lands of the desert dwarves, the Poscadar elves, the Dog People, and others. Your characters will deal with desert hardships they have never endured before. They will also confront spirits they've never heard of: the spirits that have caused the downfall of Michaca: the City of Gold.
And do not forget the words of a poet from another place, and another time:
"Nor all that tempts your wand'ring eyes / And heedless hearts, is lawful prize; / Nor all, that glisters, gold."'.
