Garden Grow 1491

Thought provoking book from many angles. I particularly liked the odd facts such as the Inka method of colonisation by the formation of a hegemonic empire which allowed control with limited military presence. The well ingrained notion of the Americas as Eden and untouched paradise is understandable but then we underestimate how quickly nature re establishes itself when areas of civilisation are abandoned
