Reviews

"Eloquently proffers a philosophy of limits that we cannot afford to ignore in this era of global warning and overpopulation." -- Los Angeles Times


"An eloquent, deep-reaching little book on the subject. But he goes far beyond the inquiry into Columbus' character, motives, and legacy. He also uses the occasion to turn our thoughts to hope: the hope that comes with both a frank acceptance of our past and a resolution to break ways with its shameful legacy." -- Bloomsbury Review


"Assets that we must go beyond an obsession with the material wealth of the continent that began with Columbus and begin to appreciate North America for its spiritual wealth if we are ever to feel at home here." -- Commonweal
