October 2012 Meeting: "1493"

At our October meeting we discussed the long awaited paperback version of 1493, Uncovering the New World Columbus Created by Charles C. Mann. We were somewhat letdown by our discussion of the book.  We had loved his "1491" (read it twice) and perhaps the comparison was unfair.  In any case, all of us Eurocentrics learned a lot of new things from the exploration of The Columbian Exchange.

Here is a link to a summary of the discussion posted on the blog of one of our members.
