Is it a autobiography? Is it a Novel? Or is it simply just a re-hashed History asignment?
Well actually it is a bit of all of the above - and it kind of works. Definately struggle through the first 2 chapters and although you wont be overly entertained you will certainly be intrigued.
This book educates you in an interestinly unique way. You learn all about early Western voyages of discoveries as well as how natives are now having to settle in western dominated area's.
Some of it is like reading sections A-C in the dictionary (packed full of facts and information, but with nothing there to make you progress on to chapter 'D') But those aspects aside, I found myself wanting to read on. Maybe simply because, like those early settlers, whilst against my better judgement, I just wanted to prove I could conquer it!
Maybe if History lessons would be more like this, I would have paid more attention!
