Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"We are taken to Lemuria by way of Mount Shasta, to Atlantis, to cities beneath the poles, and to the subterranean world: all secret places now below the sea, under the ice or, creepily, beneath our very feet. Loads of stuff, all elegantly presented too. Buy it." —"Fortean Times "(December 2010)
Midwest Book Review
Serves as an endlessly fascinating and hard to put down read.
