Pretty good book. The writing was organized by topics and then for each topic a run down of the corresponding Book of Mormon passages juxtaposed against early Spanish chronicle writers and some archaeological evidence. The main drawback of this organization is that some of the evidences get repeated. The two main cultures focused on are the Mexican and Yucatan natives and the Chavin civilization of ancient Peru.

One thing that wasn't very clear was how the author felt about which of the two geog

Ok, I have been trying to finish this book for several months now, but I cannot. It is so dry. So very very boring. I like his initial idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired. It is this guy's thesis, and it reads exactly like that. There are lots of typos, and poorly arranged sentences. So, I am sorry Mr. Calderwood, but I cannot finish reading this. Which makes me kind of sad because there was such potential.

We went into a bookstore next to the Dallas temple and the author was there for a book signing. He enthusiastically told us about his life and research and the book. As this was a topic that already interested me and as I love to hear people talk about something that they are passionate about, we bought a copy. I started to read it out loud to Matt as we drove home and we both are excited about continuing the read.

An outstanding book to read. Provides very detailed research/explantations of the various groups that populated North, Central, and South America; how developed/advanced that they where; as well as debunking the sole theory of the crossing of the Bering Straights as being the only way that the America's were settled. A must read for anyone interested in Pre & Post Columbia America.

I found new and relevant discoveries in this book. the book is way to long and dry for casual reading where the author goes into futher detail than I care to know. I learned about tribes of white indians, hebrew traditions and culture practiced by the indians, and stories passed along that parallel Book of Mormon events.

Fascinating?! Mr Calderwood has been collecting historical records, lost in Spanish and Portuguese libraries for centuries regarding the legends and oral histories, written by the Conquistadors, of the pre-Columbian Indians and their similarities to the Book of Mormon.

I read this a little at a time so I could actually retain some of the information instead of just finishing. It's very well researched and written and I learned a lot. Some day, I'll read it again.

Excellent information on Mesoamerica! I met the Author at the LDS Bookstore in Dallas and found him delightful! I could listen to him for hours.

I loved the book. I thought it was really well done. I liked how it focused more on oral tradition of the ancient Americans.

Scholarly. Took awhile to read. I met the author at the library in Nauvoo.
