Summary
We've been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13,000 years ago; they were amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors. But thanks to new discoveries, we know now that the Americas were first peopled many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhere. Hancock's research takes us from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, where he reveals ancient "New World" cultures that share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected "Old World" cultures. -- adapted from jacket
