Lies My Teacher Told Me About Christopher Columbus : What Your History Books Got Wrong Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
- Other Formats
Some myths don't die, and lies are still being told about Christopher Columbus: that he 'discovered' the Americas, that the land was sparsely populated by native people, that those people were primitive and that they submitted to Columbus's 'God-like' authority.
Loewen disproves the myths about Columbus still enshrined in American textbooks with quotations from primary source material that sets the record straight.
The poster and accompanying 48-page paperback book sum up the mistellings - and reveal the real story - in a graphically appealing and accessible format.
