The writer of this non-sense book must not be a very intelligent white person. This is the most non-historically accurate bunch of mess that I have ever come across. I pray that no one and I mean no one reads this book and walks away thinking that there is the slightest amount of truth in it. Awful and sad waste of paper and ink.

Page 460 - While kings, in dusty darkness hid, Have left a nameless pyramid, Thy heroes, though the general doom Hath swept the column from their tomb, A mightier monument command, The mountains of their native land ! There points thy Muse to stranger's eye The graves of those that cannot die ! Twere long to tell, and sad to trace, Each step from splendour to disgrace; Enough — no foreign foe could quell Thy soul, till from itself it fell ; Yes ! Self-abasement paved the way To villain-bonds and despot sway.
