More than 2,350 years ago Plato wrote of the fabulous island empire of Atlantis, which ruled the ocean as well as parts of the "opposite continent" -- what we know today as the Americas -- until the single "terrible day and night" that destroyed it in a storm of earthquakes and floods. For two millennia the fate of Atlantis has fascinated historians, philosophers, and expl ...more

A book with the word 'Atlantis' in the title makes me think it will probably be at least slightly ridiculous.

When I first picked this book up I was expecting wild claims and crazy theories. Yet, the book is filled with a logically presented theory of a possible forgotten land matching Plato's 'Atlantis.'
