America Before Columbus

The New World and the Old knew nothing about one another until they met in 1492. The arrival of Europeans in the Americas made a dramatic impact there and triggered an ecological revolution known today as "The Columbian Exchange". This groundbreaking depiction of life in the Americas before 1492 and during the first centuries of colonization shows how the Columbian Exchange transformed life not only in the New World but in the Old as well.
