Publisher's Summary

Greatly expanding on his blockbuster 1421, distinguished historian Gavin Menzies uncovers the complete untold history of how mankind came to the Americas - offering new revelations and a radical rethinking of the accepted historical record in Who Discovered America?

The iconoclastic historian's magnum opus, Who Discovered America? calls into question our understanding of how the American continents were settled, shedding new light on the well-known "discoveries" of European explorers, including Christopher Columbus. In Who Discovered America? he combines meticulous research and an adventurer's spirit to reveal astounding new evidence of an ancient Asian seagoing tradition - most notably the Chinese - that dates as far back as 130,000 years ago.

Menzies offers a revolutionary new alternative to the "Beringia" theory of how humans crossed a land bridge connecting Asia and North America during the last Ice Age, and provides a wealth of staggering claims, that hold fascinating and astonishing implications for the history of mankind.

    "Like reading an appendix"

    1421 was a riveting story so I had high hopes for this one but there was so much data if a compelling narrative was there it drowned in waves of information.

    "Interesting"

    Keep an open mind. This author has many references to collaborate his hypothesis. I wish I had time to dig deeper into them but I just wanted to keep listening. I feel like my history classes were a waste of time.

    "a must have"

    there has been years of research put into this writing. not just someones opinion. and if your into real research you must get this book. todays science is " if it does not fit the theory it cannot be" but every six months or so the educated that write history get educated.
