about this book

The National Book Award-winning author delivers a devastating assessment of the legacy of Columbus. With economy and power Lopez tells the story of a “ruthless, angry search for wealth” that stretches from the atrocities of Spanish conquistadors to the on-going pillage of our land and water. Lopez challenges the reader to adopt an ethic that will make further depradations impossible.

“Eloquently proffer[s] a philosophy of limits that we cannot afford to overlook.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
