Overview

When I discovered John D. Baldwin’s research on the lost ancient civilizations of North and South Americas, I was amazed not just because of his meticulous research about an area of history I knew virtually nothing about, but I was amazed that this man – way ahead of his time – wasn’t a household word.

Baldwin’s work on the mysterious Mount Builders, who he contends predate Native Americans by thousands of years, and his subsequent research on lost Aztec history caught my attention, as I am sure it will catch yours.

I am privileged to introduce you to this work of history that was lost more than a century ago, only to be rediscovered by me and you.

    Not Recommended - way out of date

    The title was apparently written in the 19th or early 20th century when there was still great speculation as to the origins and fate of the mound builders. It has either been only recently published or republished with no reference to earlier publication. While the book contains some interesting information, the references are old if cited at all. The author makes some arguments for his conclusions but considerable study and research since and access to accounts of earlier explorers and settlers not available to the author contradict many of his assertions. This book is somewhat entertaining as an example of speculations and wild stories about the origins and mystery of the mounds and those who built them. It represents neither an historical or scientific treatment of the subject.

    Sorry - Not What I Expected

    I wish there was something positive to say about this book. I made it through the first 30 pages but found no educational value whatsoever. I was so looking forward to this book!

    New Information in lost manuscript

    I found this book a real gem in that it uncovered a lot of info about lost American civilizations like the Mound Builders. But it also covered some fascinating tales such as the possibility that there were ancient settlements in America from Wales and even Israel. Again, it was a great read and the info was backed up thoroughly.

    New info on Mount Builders!

    Wow. Really found this book broke some ground on the mystery of the Mount Builders. It was written by a forgotten expert. Well worth the low price!

    Quite Interesting and Baffling

    This book made me really think about where the first Americans were and where they came from. Somehow this man's work got buried in time, but now it's back. Loved it.

    Interesting and thorough study of mound builders

    I found this book, which was rediscovered and republished a good read and filled with interesting theories about the ancient Mound Builders. It was easy to follow and quite entertaining -- well worth the $1 price tag. Plan to reread it.
