The concluding volume of the Fingerprints of the Gods trilogy. Could shattering secrets about the deep past of humanity await discovery in North America? Until very recently there was almost universal agreement amongst scientists that human beings first entered the Americas from Siberia around 13,000 years ago by walking into Alaska across the Bering landbridge. Thanks to scientific advances, and to archaeological and geological discoveries, we now know that the Americas were populated by humans for tens of thousands of years before the previously accepted date.

I completely binged this audible. Graham is such an orator that it doesn't even seem like he's reading it. Almost as if he's memorised the whole book, adding genuine passion and emotion to his words.
He brings a new, ancient world to life that I'd never imagined, and gives the Native Americans the great respect and honour they deserve, highlighting the history that was robbed from them, and the world, following the European conquest.
The historical tracing in this book almost brushes us up against the lost civilisation humanity has obsessed over for thousands of years. So much evidence has been lost over time, but perhaps more awaits, and we'll find the truth if we keep on searching.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

A man from humble beginnings, who set the bar so high, but would continue to overcome it. I hope to listen to this book many more times to absorb its lessons and enjoy the ride.
