Publisher Description

Columbus Was Last is an engrossing narrative about the research of archeologists, geographers, geologists, oceanographers, linguists, folklorists, ethnobotanists, and other scholars that convincingly dispels the simplistic legend that Columbus was the first to "discover" America. 


"The best book so far to answer the question 'Who discovered America?'...This important, spell-binding report replaces sugar-coated myths about Columbus's invasion of America with indispensable history." — Publishers Weekly



"A thoughtful and challenging consideration of the many voyagers who might have reached the Americas by sea before the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria...Well informed and well written, always provocative if not conclusive, this is revisionist history with a vengeance --and about time, too." — Kirkus Reviews


"Persuasively and emphatically disputes the fact that Columbus actually discovered America...A long-overdue tribute to a score of forgotten and disregarded explorers, adventurers, and sailors. Highly recommended..." — Booklist
