1491      

1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

by Charles C. Mann

 

Did you know...

 

In 1491 there were probably more people living in the Americas than in Europe? Native Americans were the first in the world to genetically engineer food crops? Tenochtitlán, the capital city of the Aztec empire, not only dwarfed all European cities in population, but had running water, beautiful botanical gardens, and immaculately clean streets?
Charles C. Mann's 1491 radically alters our understanding of the New World before the arrival of Christopher Columbus with startling facts based on the latest scientific discoveries.
