Interesting, but....

Any additional comments?

The way the narrations are presented is very confusing. They switch between each other in the middle of a chapter and at times in the middle of a paragraph! They have occasionally missed words and complete sentences. For example, in the first chapter, page 5, paragraph 5, sentence 2 and 3 are left out. On page 9, paragraph 1, sentence 3 reads 'Thus the first white man was laid to rest in Vineland the Good'. The word 'white' was left out - that makes a huge difference! Native people surely had been buried there, Thorvald was the first 'white' man to be buried there not the first man. Little things like these are annoyances but don't affect the overall performance.

Outdated, incorrect, worthless

Being written in 1917, we expected this to conform to outdated beliefs and characterizations.

Cultural bias aside, past historians can still be correct. This one is not.

We made it as far as "...trade routes in the East fell increasingly into the hands of the Turks and the INFINDELS..."

Infindels? It's INFIDELS, which is annoying but it's the misuse of the word that is far more egregious. Avoid this one.
