1491

"1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus" tells the story of indigenous Americans before Columbus. The main thesis of the book is that populations and civilizations in pre-Columbian America were much larger than most people are aware. It emphasizes that the land that Europeans thought was wilderness had actually been molded by generations of indigenous Americans; it talks in length about how scientists are now discovering that the richness of the rainforest was created by sustainable indigenous land management.
