1421 The Chinese Discover America

1421 - the fabulous book by Gavin Menzies is about the Chinese treasure fleet that explored all the world's oceans from 1421-1423. 
Here is the website.  But National Geographic isn't buying it.  They recognize seven voyages by the great admiral Zheng He = which stretch only to the east coast of Africa and Java.  Meanwhile the Chinese training ship Zhen He has just passed through the Panama Canal.
