Read from August 17 to September 03, 2012

A powerful and sobering analysis of the racism and violence that led to the near extinction of the Indian population from the Americas. The author provides context and data that makes one shudder in horror. It is at times unrelentless with facts and figures but necesarry as well in order to fully show the magnitude of what was really a religious war to ethnically cleanse two continents of its indigenous people.
