Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » When Christopher Columbus put ashore somewhere near Cuba in 1492 he thought he had reached China and the continent of spices. Imagine his amazement when he came face to face with a 'new' type of human - one that had existed in isolation for more than 20,000 years and built a civilisation undreamed of in the old world of Europe. Columbus soon realised he had made an epochal discovery but what enchanted him most was the gold to be found in this new world - it seemed to be everywhere. Within a short time many more civilisations were discovered in the Americas, and Saunders looks at them in this wide-ranging book. His narrative describes how the various cultures came about, developed and flourished, and how they developed complex language, artisticand mathematical skills that still influence the Americas today. A fine study of civilisation and of peoples who went it alone for so long.(Kirkus UK)
