A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World by Tony Horwitz
A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World

shilo2800, June 12, 2008

Tony Horeitz is informative and entertaining and very readable. I 'v enjoyed his other boooks. Blue Latitudes and Confederates in the Attic. they will keep you laughing(out loud). This one is a bit darker and I dont think he likes some of his subjects as well ( I know I don't.) Spainish Conquistadors, in particular . The English, Dutch and French weren't much better, and the terrrible consequences to the native peoples. But I learned alot of new information and smiled a bit sadly to where and what this history has brought us. It's a history worth knowing and one you won't get as clearly and readable from anyone else . Thanks Tony.
