    1. It was a hard read, and it was short. I could only read one essay every few days. It was eye bleeding and brain melting to read in their original words. It was interesting and eye opening. Something I wasn't taught in school. Remember those peaceful Native American we killed with our germs and weapons? Well they didn't really exist. They were at war with each other constantly, torturing and taking as slaves. There were acts of kindness and in some cases saved the settler's lives. So, in honesty [...]


    2. Read for school. The intros were nice from Mancall, it helped to get a feel for what the different authors were writing about. Unless you're used to the Old English writing, it can be hard to read because of the "typos" that have to be reread, but Mancall has good footnotes to help in words that we normally don't use anymore.


    3. It is insanely repetitive, but interesting to see what people thought the new world would be like versus what they were actually met with. Painful to read, and wouldn't have picked this up on my own. Only had to read it for one of my classes.
