This book describes the cultures of the ancient Maya, Inca, and Anasazi, and discusses the question of whether or not the Europeans were the first people to discover the Americas. The author concludes that when discussing the contribution of the Europeans, the word "explored" rather than "discovered" might be more appropriate.
