Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: COLUMBUS - The Untold Story (Paperback)
Many reviewers call Mr. Rosa’s history of Christopher Columbus “an alternative portrait … and... historical revisionism”.
Manuel Rosa has written a real game changer in our understanding of the dynamics associated with the Age of Discovery. It is a paradigm shifting history book on Columbus and his discoveries. The book is definitive and based on too many primary sources to have reviewers call his work historical revisionism, more precisely, it is a serious correction to the misinformation propagated by respected and serious historians.
As a Master Mariner, Captain and navigator, as well an avid student of the “Age of Discovery”, I was just mesmerized by the detailed and fascinating information based on primary sources, not looked at by previous historians/biographers.
Mr. Rosa finally gives us a true picture of the “Age of Discovery”, loosely defined as the European historical period from the 15th century to the 18th century, marking the time in which extensive overseas exploration emerged as a powerful factor in European culture and globalization.

"Columbus: The Untold Story" revolutionizes Columbus history with the deceitfulness of power, of politics, false identities and false discoveries. Herein you will be able follow the author, as he connects the dots to a medieval conspiracy, so massive, so bold, so risky, and so well executed, that it has continued to fool the world for 500 years. If you want a book that is well researched, complete with details and sources, then Columbus: The Untold Story is the book for you. I am so grateful for Mr. Rosas's outstanding scholarship and dedication. This is the most serious and in depth study I have ever read on the subject ( and I have read many...) Manuel Rosa has done an outstanding job of debunking the 'official' Genoa peasant weaver Cristoforo Colombo myth. He does this with extensive documentation. .. This fine book sifts the BS from the facts in the history of the man we still call Columbus, though he never used that name. 1st mistake historians made was relying on the novelist, Washington Irving's book on the life of the admiral, and Admiral Samuel Morrison's (also not a historian) bio. I have to say that I am fascinated by your book! It is the most thoroughly researched book on the topic of the man the world knows as "Christopher Columbus" that I have ever read.

This is EXACTLY what I do. I recommend the plant episode of Life
Hello to the general public, it is with gratitude to God and appreciation
to Dr mark henry a great herbalist that I write you this testimony on how
my health was restored. Dr marki, God will continue to bless and reward you
for the good works you are doing in people’s life through herbal
medication. My name is Felix Jumia from Budapest,Hungary, I had lived with
HIV since 2016 (3years plus) I visited so many hospitals and places in the
search for cure but they always end up giving me drugs that could sustain
my life for a certain period of time, I spent so much money in the search
for a cure but it was all to no avail. Just a few months back, as I was
searching through the internet for possible remedy to my problem, I saw a
blog on how a certain Dr mark healed and cures people from different
illness, viruses and diseases such as HIV, herpes simplex, ALS, cancer,
genital warts, cold sore, skin cancer, diaper rash and some other
infections, I didn’t believe the testimonies so I just ignored, but after
awhile, I thought about it again and decided to give it a try since am
seriously in search of a solution to my problem. I contacted him via his
email and behold he replied me and also told me what to do, he made me
believe in possibilities and positivity. He sent me a package containing
some herbal medication and after taking them religiously as prescribed for
about a week, I went for a test and to my greatest surprise I was tested
HIV NEGATIVE. It sure feels good to be healthy again. Please if you have
any problems as a result of one illness, disease, or infection you can
reach out to doctor mark henry via his email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and his number for whatsapp, +2348168782773 swallow your doubt and contact
him because am a living testimony. Don’t forget to tell him Felix Jummai
referred you to him.

I'll show a set of works was made in the 1990’s. Some of them were created when I was still attending Art School (School of Communication and Art of the University of São Paulo) in Brazil. They are traditional media prints: etchings, drypoints, mezzotints, silk screen and lithography. Among them are the few prints on paper where I have worked with colors. Many of them have São Paulo city subway system as the main subject. They depict details of stations, train cars or passengers in figurative or abstract ways. Starting from the actual physical places they suggest a reflection on the passengers’ psychological state of mind while commuting to work or school.

The event is now at 44 Soul Cafe 7361 Six Forks Road Raleigh, NC on Wednesdays from 830 to 11 pm. Look for more info coming soon.
The Big Virginia Sky album has a pleasing sound that combines the energy and texture of bluegrass traditions with the refreshing and yet simple originality and song writing. The music seems to flow naturally. Lonesome River Band's Sammy Shelor was with BVS at IBMA 2016 and does appear on every track on the album. Sammy is a real pro.
Best show I've seen in awhile
My latest release features a member of the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra, as well as Autumn Rose Brand, strings and horns. And on and on. I got signed to a label out of DC for this album. "The Mayor of Estes Park". I hope you like it and I hope you all can attend. As for Frank Black, if it doesn't matter to you, it doesn't matter to me.
Does anyone know why the venue changed for this show?
I love Bazan. Nice review.
This is the release party for my new CD-aleph infinity. All sales will be donated to www.rescue.org.
