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.

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.
I love Bazan. Nice review.
Simply the best caribbean food in town!
This event is awesome and great for the family - bring kids to the Kid Zone! It's part of a summer-long concert series, Oak City 7, every other Thursday evening and features all local NC bands. The event is produced by Deep South Entertainment and is 100% sponsor driven. Local music, local art and food truck vendors and local beer. Perfect free, summer activity in downtown Raleigh.
If you have not seen Sarah Shook and the Disarmers, Friday night at Cats Cradle is the best time to get it done! Looking forward to seeing Blue Cactus for the first time.
This is a real decent band, saw them last year - lots of 80s and 90s stuff, professional.
Apple butter is good
I love it
Great customer service. Always stocked, reliable. A+
I wish I had been there, but it's not a problem because I am going on the concert the next week http://www.celticwomanconcerts.com/c/tour-dates-2016/
Theatre In The Park delivers big again in this season's production of "The Elephant Man." Presented in TIP's intimate theatre, the show mesmerizes from start to finish. Ira David Wood III portrays Mr. Merrick with heartbreaking warmth and intelligence, contorting his body to match the appropriate physical deformities the entire show. The supporting cast is superb, notably Ira David Wood IV and Lynda Clark. This contemplative show gains it's power more from the other character's reactions to and treatment of Mr. Merrick (and his reactions and response) than from Mr. Merrick himself. There's only one more weekend to see this fabulous show. Don't miss it!
This small Theater always delivers big productions. I have seen many different styles of plays here and never been disappointed. Ira David Wood III leads groups of actors in many styles and has produced more play than i can count that have made me Cry,Laugh and yes even think. I you are looking for a Community Theater that offers Broadway quality shows check this Theater out soon.
I look forward to "The Elephant Man" The cast looks amazing!!
Have been a fan of Mr. Dave since I saw him on my 19th birthday in 1974. Last year got to see him again on my birthday in Greensboro where I mostly listened but grabbed a few images of him. Even played "Soul Of A Man" for my birthday at my wife's request. This is a not to be missed show and it was packed last year in Greensboro so I wouldn't delay getting tickets for it. Mr. Dave tends to draw almost all the local musicians out of the woodwork so it will be interesting to see who shows up to see him at the Motorco.
