"The only thing new in the world is the history you don't know."-Harry S. Truman

Just in time for Columbus Day, a book that debunks much of our preconceived notions of American history, including that Columbus was certainly not the first "Old World" explorer to reach the Americas.

"The question is no longer 'Who discovered America?' Thanks to Frank Joseph, the question is now, 'Who didn't discover America?'"

While understanding Columbus is still a part of the dialog and story of America, this book

An extremely interesting look at the evidence for per-columbian visitors to the shores of North and South America. The book has chapters on each of the following: Sumerians, Egyptians, Minoans, Phoenicians, Romans, Kelts, Hebrews, Africans, Japanese, Chinese, South East Asians, Norse, Knights Templar and Christians.

Lots of information , gives a good start to research and look up on your own to confirm what he brings out in his book. Makes you think about why mainstream science is afraid to look into these findings that mr Joseph points out, true or false.
