“It is always easy for those living in the present to feel superior to those who lived in the past.”
Charles C. Mann
tags: 1491

“I kept waiting for the book to appear. The wait grew more frustrating when my son entered school and was taught the same things I had been taught, beliefs I knew had long been sharply questioned. Since nobody else appeared to be writing the book, I finally decided to try it myself. Besides, I was curious to learn more. The book you are holding is the result.”
Charles C. Mann, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

“Scholars had known for more than fifteen hundred years that the world was large and round. Colón disputed both facts.”
Charles C. Mann, 1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created
