Once or twice per year, my local Costco puts out for sale a big stack of paperback copies of Charles C. Mannís 2005 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, a detailed combination of history, travelogue, and popular science that has become one of more respected and popular nonfiction books of the last decade. I find it heartening that somebody can still make decent money writing an ambitious, serious, and well-researched book. Now Mann has published a new bestseller sequel about the historical roots of globalization: 1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created .

How did he create when he found what was already there?

Sounds like it is worth checking out. It reminds me of the Cabeza de Vaca book I read, but that was 100 years later. What an amazing time in history.
