Summary

In the 16th century, Spanish conquerors came to the New World in search of El Dorado, the fabled city of gold. Instead, they encountered inexplicable phenomena that have puzzled scholars and historians ever since: massive stone edifices constructed in the Earth's most inaccessible regions...great monuments forged with impossible skill and unknown tools...intricate carvings describing events and places half a world away.

Who were the bearded "gods of the golden wand" who had brought civilization to the Americas millennia before Columbus? Who were the giants whose sculpted stone heads in Mesoamerica still mystify to this day?

In this remarkably researched fourth volume of The Earth Chronicles, author and explorer Zecharia Sitchin uncovers the long-hidden secrets of the lost New World civilizations of the Olmecs, Aztecs, Mayas, and Incas and links the conquistadors' quest for El Dorado to the extraterrestrials who searched there for gold long before.

I love all his books so far

Sitchin, is the man! so much detail in his research and despite all of the $h!t fellow researchers talked about him towards the end of his life... time has only proven him wise and unbiased. He was a REAL teacher.

Relates the Americas to 'Biblical' and Middle East

Relates the Americas to 'Biblical' and Middle East history. I feel he did a good job relating them together in a fairly academic presentation. He often gives his research (and those who agree or parallel his research) then gives opposing views (often along with the oppositions source or research) and ends with his opinion. Of particular interest to me was the 'day without Sun' as recorded in the Americas corresponding to the 'biblical day with only Sun' (no night) in the Middle East. Also, fascinating opinions and research on the Olmecs with their 'white, bearded allies' (where they came from, what they were doing, and what happened to them. A decent read... but awesome at 2xSpeed while listening on Audible!

Brain and Balls

Finally, a man who had questions, studied throughout his life and put pieces of the world puzzle together. Why is everyone afraid, the church the govt losing control when it seems warring is in our genetic code.

Most importantly he was not afraid to present them in his books.

Pronunciatuon & accentuation are worse here

The detraction of narrator pronunciation goes far beyond the choice to NOT pronounce the word "Annunaki" as Sitchin did. In this volume there are terrible pronunciations (without consistency) of American's sites. So listening is made difficult and maddening. Sitchin's good work deserves better.
