I'm finally getting the hang of this book. It's a slow read. It's also reinforcing that early "explorers" were actually genocidal maniacs. "I have discovered this new world. All you 4 million or so natives, bow down. I own you now. Oh, don't like that? Die."
It's the reason on Thanksgiving I don't talk about pilgrims and Native Americans. To me, it's nothing to celebrate. I just eat and enjoy my family.
