Any book with the word “Atlantis” in the title deserves some skepticism. Hold off on that for this one.

We all know there was “Lucy,” the pre-human, in East Africa some three million years ago, about the time we came out of the trees, walked around the grasslands, and made tools. Then humans showed up about 1.5 million years ago. We marched out of there and across the world about five hundred thousand years ago, getting smarter all the time, and modern humans are on the scene fifty thousand years

The author makes a compelling argument for a proto-history of a technological past not acknowledged by conventional historians, and of a time table of humanity that goes further back than the Fertile Crescent or Ancient Egypt.

Great for people who wonder about the history museums wont cover. No politics, just a great deal of facts ignored by people looking for textbook contracts because they don't fit preferred theories. I always thought the scientific method started with ALL the facts and proceeded to general theories but that grows less common as the educational establishment decides what should have happened instead of what all the evidence suggests. Good s an overview and a deeper look as well.

Being a history buff I couldn't wait to read this book and it didn't let me down! The book covers everything from theories of evolution ( aquatic ape) to proof of pre-ice age, advanced cultures. I would suggest this book to anyone interested in the history of man that's not taught in school! Like always Frank doesn't let his reader down!

Interesting to read an unconventional view of early human and pre-human history and how sectie science can be in what it accepts. There science heresies and orthodoxies.

Not what I expected. This book challenges the mainstream scientific knowledge of human origins and evolution. It suggests that we are evolved from fish rather than mammals. Interesting theory, but there seems to be no concrete scientific proof to these arguments. I didn't make it through chapter 2.

New age writer mostly writing about the hypothesis that Old World peoples migrated to North America.

In 1987 he wrote his first book about Atlantis.

He wrote articles for Fate magazine & The Ancient American magazine which is a diffusionist-inspired magazine that focuses on what it says is evidence of ancient, pre-Columbian transoceanic contact between the Old World and North America.
