1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann
1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

Mysterious6030, January 2, 2013

Scientific and historical journalism at its best, Charles C. Mann presents an eminently readable explication of the latest insights into the nature of the American societies and civilizations which thrived in the 'New World' centuries before they became new. Delving into thorny questions such as when and how the first Americans reached these continents, when they developed recorded language, and how the Indians manipulated or even created the environment surrounding them, Mann presents the available evidence and speculation fairly, in an understandable fashion which never patronizes the reader or his subject.
