    Story
    (590)

    In this riveting, accessible work of science, Charles Mann takes us on an enthralling journey of scientific exploration. We learn that the Indian development of modern corn was one of the most complex feats of genetic engineering ever performed. That the Great Plains are a third smaller today than they were in 1700 because the Indians who maintained them by burning died. And that the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact.

    Case says: "Hotly debated new theories, but NOT revisionism"
    "Where did all the Indians go?"
    Overall

    1491 is a 9-disc book, which says that what we learned about the Indians in school is wrong. Charles C. Mann reviews recent findings and says that an advance civilization was wipe out with the introduction of small pox. Mann believes that the Indians were in the ?new? world tens of thousands of years earlier than we were taught. 1491 was a interesting and presented a series of new theories of what the Americas were like prior to Columbus.

  • Chronicles: Volume One

    Bob Dylan's Chronicles: Volume One explores the critical junctions in his life and career. Through Dylan's eyes and open mind, we see Greenwich Village, circa 1961, when he first arrives in Manhattan. Dylan's New York is a magical city of possibilities: smoky, nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories, penetrating and tough.

    Gerry A. Brown says: "Positively 4th Street"
    "Chronicles: Volume One"
    Overall

    Bobbie Zimmerman tells his story free of drugs, sex, and rock and roll. He says he was just a folk singer and fans interfered with his life. As I listen to the audio, I had to check to see if I was listening to the discs in the right order. The book is revealing, but I did not like what it reveals. The Dylan I loved as a teen was not in this book. It was painful to this 50 year old former fan.
