I have used this book as a 'guide' of sorts and have visited quite a few of the sites that DHC discusses. I have not been disappointed. The reason I don't give it 5 stars is because there are some factual errors, not-the-best editing and some things DHC talks about are so strange that you have to take them with a grain a salt. Bottom line, though, I find it extremely difficult to accept the established idea that there were no humans/humanoids living in the Americas before some nomads supposedly came across the Bering Strait 12,000 years ago and populated the continent. To think otherwise, despite evidence to the contrary, isn't politically-correct. Everyone knows that the White Man stole this land from the Indians, but if it ever came to light that the Indians stole the land from someone else first, with they themsleves being the 'invaders', then that would tend to lessen any claims they have on it. Don't be fooled by the PC crowd, the Americas have been fought over again and again down through the ages of tens of thousands of years.

Sorry, but I just couldn't swallow many of the things put forth by the author. While it is an entertaining read I find many of the 'facts' just a little too bizarre, if not downright error and poor editing. Examples: the author said he was going to head east from Sedona, Arizona and had the setting sun in his sights. Last time I checked the sun set in the west. In one story he mentioned the 'Calvary' several times, meaning the army. There is a huge difference in 'Calvary', the place where Christ was crucified, and the 'cavalry', a branch of the army. Mistakes like these make me wonder about the credibility of the whole book. While I do agree that there are many unexplained things and lost cities on earth that have fantastic explanations I find that this book borders more on science fiction or fantasy than fact.

In a world where the misteries of the past has gone ignored and scoffed at, this is the one glimmer of hope that I see. Being a young acheologist in the making, I'm love this book! Ciudad Blanca is the city I wish find, and know I have many others to ponder about!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
