One of the most surprising, original and beautifully written books I have ever read, somewhere between history and poetry. I love this book and it has invariably deeply affected and surprised everyone I have recommended it to. Read this book!

Great book to learn new things about America. History, legends, facts, all in one book without having to read thousands of books. Good overview from Canada to the Patagonia, pre Colombian to the beggining of the Spanish empire decay. Out of this book I picked the Incas as the next civilization to read about.
