Review quote

"Forbes makes an unusual and fascinating contribution to the story of the New and Old Worlds and the links between them, questioning in a welcome way the truth and ideological sway of orthodox history. He leads his reader along paths rarely, if ever, trodden, ultimately in search of a fairer account of native America and its role in planetary experience. This is a quest that Forbes 's own ancestry and - not least - keen sense of language well equip him to undertake. He eminently succeeds." Gordon Brotherston, author of Image of the New World: The American Continent Portrayed in Native Textsshow more
