1491 New Revelations of the Americas

“Before it became the New World, the Western Hemisphere was vastly more populous and sophisticated than has been thought—an altogether more salubrious place to live at the time than, say, Europe. New evidence of both the extent of the population and its agricultural advancement leads to a remarkable conjecture: the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact….” so says Charles C. Mann, the author of “1491 – New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus”, a fascinating read. Mann’s book should be a Must Have in every homeschooling home, as well as every collegiate history department. Every revisionism myth of the past 30 years is laid bare and dissected with succinct and compelling clarity. Whlie you’re waiting for your copy to come in the mail, here’s a taste of Mann’s writing and views: http://cogweb.ucla.edu/Chumash/Population.html published in the Atlantic Monthly, March 2002.
