Book description
This is a reprint of the rare and long out of print 1952 classic by the noted British adventure writer, famed for his flying saucer and Atlantis theories. Claiming that South America is the Atlantis of myth and legend, this marvellous reprint includes chapters on: Atlantis unveiled; red riddle on the rocks; South America's Amazons; the mystery of El Dorado; Gran Payatiti -- the final refuge of the Incas; monstrous beasts of the unexplored swamps and wilds; weird denizens of antediluvian forests; new light on Atlantis from the world's oldest book; the mystery of Noah and the Ark
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0932813550, Paperback)

Monstrous beasts, lost worlds, vanished civilizations, Amazon warriors, even Atlantis and Noah’s ark figure in this wondrous and rare book. Hard to find in print before now, this obscure 1952 work is an artifact itself, of the postwar fascination with all things mysterious, from flying saucers to ancient astronauts to “the third eye.” In this wildly entertaining—and more than a little bit preposterous—document, Wilkins takes us from mountain jungles to unexplored swamps on a search for the hidden secrets of old South America. Seekers after the arcane and fans of the paranormal will delight in this odd and extraordinary volume. British journalist and historian HAROLD T. WILKINS (1891–1960) is also the author of Mysteries of Ancient South America (1945) and Mysteries of Time and Space (1958).
