1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created


Show Synopsis

More than 200 million years ago, geological forces split apart the continents. Isolated from each other, the two halves of the world developed totally different suites of plants and animals. Columbus's voyages brought them back together--and marked the beginning of an extraordinary exchange of flora and fauna between Eurasia and the Americas.

Mann delivers again

Picking up where he left off with 1491, Charles Mann shows how the world abruptly changed, there is no other way to describe it, with the rapid spread of the "Columian Exchange". I highly recommend that both books be read togeather.
