i think is fascinating about this book cause you got alot of hard core evidence. but he keep repeating the subject.
: Okay, that does not rhyme as well as the well known line about Columbus sailing the ocean blue in 1492, but according to a new book by the title
: 1421 - The Year China Discovered the World.
: That is just what happened, and yes the author does seem to show that China not only made it to North & South America 71 years before the Italian kid, but did a LOT more exploring and came back with maps and
: left behind solders and other people.
: There was just no follow up because the emperor who started it all died before the fleet returned and the new emperor was not interested in taking it further.
: I wonder what happen to those left behind?
