9780061379253: The lost realms: Book IV of the Earth Chronicles (The Earth Chronicles)

In the sixteenth century, Spanish conquerors came to the New World in search of El Dorado, the fabled city of gold. Instead, they encountered inexplicable phenomena that have puzzled scholars and historians ever since: massive stone edifices constructed in the Earth's most inaccessible regions . . . great monuments forged with impossible skill and unknown tools . . . intricate carvings describing events and places half a world away.

Who were the bearded "gods of the golden wand" who had brought civilization to the Americas millennia before Columbus? Who were the giants whose sculpted stone heads in Mesoamerica still mystify to this day?

In this remarkably researched fourth volume of The Earth Chronicles, author and explorer Zecharia Sitchin uncovers the long-hidden secrets of the lost New World civilizations of the Olmecs, Aztecs, Mayas and Incas, and links the conquistadors' quest for El Dorado to the extraterrestrials who searched there for gold long before.

From the Back Cover:

ARCHAEOLOGY / HISTORY

When the Spanish conquistadors came to the New World in search of EI Dorado, the fabled city of gold, they instead found stone edifices of massive proportions mysteriously constructed in inaccessible regions--huge monuments built with a skill level and tools yet unknown to the indigenous cultures of that part of the world.

In The Lost Realms, Zecharia Sitchin combines archaeological, mythological, and textual evidence to uncover links between ancient Near Eastern and prehistoric American civilizations--links that explain the Pyramids and "cities of the gods" in Mexico, the Mayan mastery of astronomy, the secrets of the Olmec calendar, and the presence of the oldest metropolis in the Americas on the shores of Lake Titicaca. He discloses answers to the puzzles of the ancient American civilizations-answers that strongly suggest the involvement of "gods" from another planet who made Earth their home.

“A dazzling performance. ...Sitchin is a zealous investigator.”
--Kirkus Reviews

“Sitchin's pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photos and line drawings included in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, seals, etc. Used generously throughout) they provide vital visual evidence.”
--Rosemary Decker, historian and researcher

About the Author:

Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.
