Read full description of the books It All Started with Columbus:Richard Willard Armour (July 15, 1906–February 28, 1989) was an American poet and author. Armour also wrote satirical books, such as Twisted Tales from Shakespeare, and his ersatz history of the United States, It All Started With Columbus. These books were typically filled with puns and plays on words, and gave the impression of someone who had not quite been paying attention in class, thus also getting basic facts not quite right, to humorous effect.
