Auteur: Galeano, Eduardo
Sub titel: Memory of Fire Trilogy, Part 1
The author has drawn from many sources to compile this beautifully written history of the Americas, told in a couple of hundred short chapters, each a mini story of a legend or historical event presented in chronological order. Part one of the book, called 'First Voices' recounts ancient legends and creation myths of the first peoples of the Americas, later comes contact with Europeans - the 'discovery' years then conquest. Volume One of the trilogy takes the reader up to 1700 and recounts more stories from South America than the Caribbean or North America, though all parts of the Americas are touched.
