I am reading a very interesting book, "Indian Givers, How the Indians of the Americas Transformed the World by Jack Weatherford. It's not finished yet but the first few chapters deal with agronomy. He talks about the early civilizations in South and North America and the cultivation habits, food development, and the spread of fruits, vegetables, spices to around the world. It's an amazing story.

That sounds like a great book! I'm very interested in Native American cultures. It's interesting that they're taking a title that many (including me) is a slur and turning it around.

This book has amazed me. I have learned a lot. One section deals with their government and how some of our founding fathers adopted facets of their political system and incorporated them into our governmental system.

The Americas were the pharmacy of the world too.
