About the Book

By the late 19th century, the bulk of these new countries had achieved independence from their previous European masters. Titles include: A Short History of Mexico, America Not Discovered by Columbus: An Historical Sketch of the Discovery of America by the Norsemen in the Tenth Century, Columbus and His Predecessors; A Study in the Beginnings of American History, Mexico in Revolution, and The First Letter of Christopher Columbus to the Noble Lord Raphael Sanchez Announcing the Discovery of America.
