Last year, I wrote thoughts about Christopher Columbus. Through the Internet my thoughts sailed across the country, prompting numerous debates regarding his morality and his significance. Indulge me as I revisit his story. This time I'll delve deeper into the nature of the man. There was a time when the New World did not exist - at least not for Europeans. The sun set in the west at the far edge of an ocean where no man dared to venture, and beyond that, infinity - or so they thought.

"Be faithful to the book" was his mantra and his goal was to buy British ? all British cast, all British locations. When the first film was released, Potter fans were both pleased and a bit disappointed. Yes, the first movie was faithful to the story but pickier viewers wondered why Columbus hadn't upped the artistic ante and improvised a little.

Columbus' voyages to the "New World" were just the beginning of the intermingling of peoples and cultures that formed our nation; this rich and varied history is reflected in the prehistoric sites, buildings, structures, objects and districts found throughout the Southwest. Greg Warriner's film, as part of the Kiwanis travel series, evokes a beautiful land of deserts, mountains and fertile valleys which is both very old and very new. The Southwest contains venerable adobe communities and ancient, long-abandoned prehistoric ruin collectively representing thousands of years of habitation.
