Stolen Continents: The "New World" through Indian Eyes since 1492
When Columbus arrived, the Americas held about 100 million people, a fifth of the human race. Within decades, most of them were dead -- victims of imported epidemics and barbarous assaults. The European invaders sacked mighty cities, destroyed great art, plundered fabulous wealth and seized the land.
But the New World's people did not all perish and neither did their view of history, though it has been suppressed for centuries. In Stolen Continents, Wright quotes the authentic speech and writing of five indigenous peoples - Aztec, Maya, Inca, Cherokee and Iroquois - over a span of 500 years. We relive their strange, tragic experience through their eloquent words and see the European invaders through their shrewd, unblinking eyes.
Stolen Continents is a moving account of the terrible war between the New World and the Old.
