“Everything You Need to Know About Columbus,” by Gloria Deák (October), is popular history writing at its best. I was amazed to realize how much I didn’t know about one of the bestknown figures in American history and had never even thought to ask. Gloria Deák has given us the questions, provided the answers, and then tied it all together with a superb use of historical images. Bravo!
