Native American Myths and Mysteries
“…full of cultural, archæological, and historical mysteries, and Gaddis writes with passion.” — Fortean Times
Scholarly, but highly readable and entertaining, this book is a must for students of the Native American culture, ceremony and prophecy. In vivid detail Gaddis traces the forgotten knowledge of the megalithic stone builders; the vast networks of subterranean tunnels and caverns where hoards of Incan gold still lie hidden; the cyclopean ruins of Tiahuanaco and cities lost deep in the Amazonian jungle; and legends of the world-wide cataclysms that destroyed these pre-historic civilizations.
