Descriptions du produit

Lost Cities of Ancient Lemuria and the Pacific Was there once a continent in the Pacific called Lemuria or Pacifica by ecologists, and Mu or Pan by the mystics? There is now ample mythological, geological and archaeological evidence to 'prove' that an advanced and ancient civilisation once lived in the central Pacific. Full description

Only book of its kind on Lemuria 11 juin 2001
Par Daniel H. Carter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
With few books on Lemuria out there, this one gives probably the best run-down on the idea of a lost continent in the Pacific. Atlantis is famous in the Atlantic, but few know of the evidence, via legends, geological and archeological, of a lost civilization in the Pacific. Geologists tell us that ocean levels were 300 feet lower 10,000 years ago--and Childress tells us that this would make mini-continents of some areas of the Pacific. Does civilization stretch back 10,000 or 20,000 years? If so, than Lemuria may have existed!

Travelogue + Entertaining Survey of some esoteric topics 24 mai 2005
Par Richard B. Mcgee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I first read "Lost Cities of Ancient Lemuria and the Pacific" in Spring 1994 while a graduate student at Univ. of California at Riverside. I found the book while just aimlessly roaming through the univ's library in their sort of "alternate history" section (sorry; don't know where that is on the Dewey decimal system), where I found a pretty good collection of those kinds of books, going back as far as Churchward and Donnelly ....

Childress's book is, as others on here have written, a travelogue, in which he expounds on possible "lost civilizations" ranging from the Indian Ocean as far west as Madagascar all the way eastward to almost the west coast of North America. He brings in all kinds of references -- "academically credible" or not -- from Helena Blavatsky through Nazis and then all the way back to the Hebrew Exodus.

But that is just in the "controversial" parts of the book. Otherwise, he really does deliver a travelogue replete with his adventures of combing tiny Pacific islands and even camping out (I'm doing this one from memory) in a beach cave beneath the Easter Island statues. If you learn nothing else from this book, you might learn the tragic history of Easter Island and it's people.

Most people probably don't know that there are coral-stone megaliths on tiny Pacific islands and atolls; formations reminiscent of Stonehenge or Baalbek or some South American edifices, on islands not much larger than the formations themselves. Childress makes you wonder how that much labor could be marshalled for that much effort in what has been a sea-desert for as long as anyone knows.

The best thing Childress does with the empirical parts of the book is to raise the question of whether some unknown civilization --not necessarily originating in the Pacific-- could have traveled there and built megalithic structures for whatever their purposes might have been.. He gives attention to other areas also not usually included in the "lost civilizations" roll call, most particularly for me Australia.

Some will say "Childress is no archaeologist!" or might say his "literature review" is a rehash of old and dubious data. Yeah, I know he isn't, and I can spot cruddy data as quick as or quicker than anyone. He's throwing information at us in shotgun fashion, and it's up to the reader to decide what you'll accept or not. That's fine. I don't think Childress was pretending to "serious scholarship" with this one. Hey, the book is fun! ------- even for a grad student.

Live a little!! --which might be David Hatcher Childress's motto.

Best before or after travel reading to the Pacific Rim 22 juin 2003
Par Vaikal Inc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
We are grateful this book was handed to our New Zealand Immigration Services as a gift 7 years ago. Its not the sort of title you go out and shop for yourself if you have never read anything like this before. We couldnt put this book down, our friends try to steal it. Its the kind of book you pick up over and over, alot like a favourite internet page. David, who is American and at the time when he wrote this, a very young man, deserves alot of credit for his gusto on travel blogging, research and investigation skills. His writing and personality draws you into his adventure with humour and a new sense of wonder and appreciation if you are new to ancient geographical history, with interesting maps and details on the secrets of Lemuria and Pacific. David provided in simple, humourous and evokingly well constructed form, a bridge of knowledge to things we never knew about our beautiful continent as well as Asia and India.
If : you are keen on getting an insight to life or vacations in the Southern Hemisphere, are searching for unique travel destinations or ideas, are intrigued by archaeology, this book is a perfect start. If : you live in the Pacific Rim, are brand new to subjects regarding the esoteric origins of mans civilisation in your area, talk to people from all walks of life in your work, or even possess a curiosity for things outside or even inside the box. We recommend this book and all his other titles with 50 stars for David.

A Groundbreaking Book 27 juillet 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
David Hatcher Childress's book looks at the Lemuria story, the lost continent of the Pacific or maybe Indian ocean, with great imagination and intellectual curiosity. For the first time since the 1930s he approached the subject in detail, and he is not afraid to take on many aspects of the story, however quirky, with an open mind. Moreover, I liked the physical descriptions of the places he visited, and the book can be read as an offbeat travelogue as well as alternative archaeology. Recommended reading for lost continent buffs!

Lost Cities Series: Classic Required Reading 5 janvier 2011
Par atomicoverload.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Lost Cities series by David Hatcher Childress has proven for me to be probably the most entertaining, thoroughly informative, and thought provoking series of books I have ever read and have also served as an invaluable road map for my own travels around the world in search of ancient mysteries. I have traveled, so far, to several locations in Egypt, Malta, Europe, Asia, Central and South America and each time I have used his books to plan my route and have taken whichever one I needed for the journey as a guide. I bought the whole series long ago and they are generally beat to hell if not falling apart at this point and I wouldn't have them any other way. Reading this series made me make up my mind that I could never be satisfied being a spectator of the debate, but the only way to truly know these mysteries was to be a participant and see them for myself. At the very least this series should inspire you to get out there, live your life as a traveler and not a tourist and go see these places for yourself. Save the money, do it cheap, whatever you have to do, but don't let the opportunity to actually go there pass you by in this life.

Equal parts detective story, travel guide, diary, history book, and compendium of esoteric knowledge; what makes these books so unique, among other things, is that Childress takes the reader with him through every step of the journey -cold beers, missed trains, broken legs, chance encounters, stolen wallets, one night stands in far away places, wishing you could stay but knowing you can't. All the while on the trail of an ever growing mystery with every answer leaving only more questions spurring you on to the next stop wondering what will happen next. One thing I always respected about Childress in these books, which some may not get the point, is that while at times he does present off-beat esoteric ideas about lost civilizations, it is done so not to promote any particular idea, but rather to give a greater context of the history of the literature of the last few hundred years concerning lost civilizations in the hope that something worthwhile might be gleaned from even the most outlandish or dated of source. To him it is a journey and to his credit does little to leave any stone unturned. But also unique to Childress compared with other writers of the genre is that other than the obvious general idea that there is much more to the story of history than we know, he rarely takes a definitive stance on any pet theory, but rather presents the information with more of a sense of wonder and openness and is really not trying to sell the reader on anything either way other than the necessity to keep an open mind. All just interesting to know and he leaves the reader to think of it what they will which is refreshing.

All and all very interesting and entertaining and I highly recommend getting the whole series. The Lost Cities series are true classics of the genre and should be a front and center addition to any alternative researchers library and as a whole are an unparalleled source of of information about many megalithic sites and discoveries you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Hopefully they will inspire you as they did me.
