Chinese map claims to back theory that China discovered America – Yahoo! News

I read parts of Gavin Menzies’ book awhile back. He has a very facinating theory that Chinese sailors and explorers discovered America about seventy years before Columbus. According to him, they also planted colonies in various places, but were never able to maintain contact with them due to a changing political climate back home.
