Boring, boring, boring
I love history, and this book was a big disappointment: dry, unoriginal, nearly unbearable. I couldn't finish it. There could be compelling human stories and social history buried here, sometimes hinted at but then not pursued. The author is neither a good researcher nor a good story teller, and the whole effort is disjointed. If you have read 1491 and Guns, Germs, and Steel or any number of books about the early history of the New World, this is not the book for you!
