The Unsolved Mystery of Noah's Ark by Mary Irwin

Ararat, a behemoth of a mountain, is 17,000 feet of pain for anyone who dares trespass upon its icy heights. It is a place of dread where one wrong step can send climbers careening down a steep, glacial field into the abyss known as the Ahora Gorge. Many have died on those slopes, and some have never been seen again. So why do climbers come to this place on the far east of the Turkish Frontier? It is not for sport alone; in fact, for most, that is far from the real reason. They come to Ararat flirting with death to find an old boat we all know as Noah's ark. It is said that its rotting corpse is somewhere up there in the swirling clouds and slumbering silence of ancient ice. Come with Mary Irwin, one of the original "ark-aeologists," as she travels to Ararat and back again uncovering many of the ancient secrets of Noah's ark. You may be surprised what you find!

A Wonderfully Written and Interesting Book! What I truly enjoyed about this was how much research went into Ms. Irwin's book, how well that research was presented, and the fact that it was presented not only from the religious point of view, but from the layman's as well. The book proves the point that one does not have to disbelieve the Bible in order to interpret or redefine certain facts or historical events. The best part was that with all of the data and research, the book was a fascinating and terrific read. Pick this one up for sure!

Mary Irwin has done a lot of research on the subject and has brought up a lot of questions for me. From her research I now have questions about some of the previous information I had taken for fact. Now I am going to do more searching for myself. A very good read.

You won't be able to lay this book down. It will save you reading ten other books on the searches for Noah's ark over the years and present you with many facts to ponder. The author also goes into the depths of geologic processes which might have affected the ark, which I found extremely intrigueing. Denver, CO

Want an intriging read? Try this book. I found it a very interesting adventure traveling through the pages and exploring some of the sightings and information about the infamous Noah's Ark. Like a ghost ship that appears off and on throughout the centuries Noah's Ark is a sure couriosity. This book sorts out some of these stories and makes you think of other possiblities were the ark may have landed. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did... Happy Ark Hunting. Sarasota, FL
