1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus by Charles C. Mann

I should expect some things I learned from books years ago to be wrong, but this was more than I expected. The views I had of the Americas have been updated with new research. Why the Indians died off, how the environment was managed, when civilization was established, etc. A fascinating book with 100 pages of notes, bibliography, and index.
