    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"
    "Good read"
    Overall

    A good read and some pretty good information on the Amercan's and the Indian population before Columbus. Well written for the non-antrhopologists. No doubt the academia eggheads will nic pic and find fault with it...but it's very enlightening. The author avoids the political aspects of things...and just lays out the facts as known to us today.
