"systematic, thorough, well-researched, and well organized...both intruitging and instructive." - Jennifer A. Jordan, Contemporary Sociology: A Journal of Reviews

"Kubal's study provides an interesting and insightful exploration of how different types of groups relate to the national origin myth of Christopher Columbus...it presents a thought provoking account of what is really just a story; a tale of how American society has adjusted and adapted a narrative of what many still consider its originating event." - Timothy B. Gongaware, Sociological Spectrum
