The European ChallengeBook - 1992
The European Challenge details the clash of cultures beginning 500 years ago. When the voyager Colon--known to posterity as Columbus--and his crews arrived in the Caribbean, native tribes were awed by the pale, bearded men from afar. Over the next 200 years, however, as waves of Spanish, English, Dutch, French, Portuguese, and Russian adventurers arrived in the New World, the simplicity and wonder of native inhabitants elicited cynical oppression and bloodshed.
