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 the world. This is a quest 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 Texts "A decisive, independent, and long overdue contribution that pulls the plug from the inflated icon the Christian West has made of the slaver Christopher Columbus in his mistaken attempt to reach India." Hartmut Lutz, professor of American studies, Greifswald University, Germanyshow more
