Nature’s Metropolis Circa 1833

Another great book, just once though it would be nice to learn about a new US city without an early chapter documenting how the origin of the land was another shameful American treaty used to displace and destroy the original Native American inhabitants to capitalize on the freely doomed and therin spoils of our Manifest destiny. Perhaps this time the lesson will stick the next time I start to imagine we are somehow an exemplary nation, or allow myself to suffer surprise when I see certain politicians or judges of my age claiming disenfranchisement or injustice as progress towards a greater good.
