From the Publisher:

“From the end of the 4th millennium BC until the time of the Spanish conquest of Peru and Mexico in the 16t Century, humans were building Pyramids. At almost every point in that 4.500-year span of time, a culture somewhere on the face of the globe, dedicated itself with great energy and devotion to the construction of immense monuments bearing deep religious and ritual significance.

“Is it a mere coincidence that pyramids are found throughout our globe? Did cultures ranging across vast spaces in geography and time, such as the ancient Egyptians; early Buddhists; the Maya, Inca, Toltec, and Aztec civilizations of the Americas; the Celts of the British Isles; and even the Mississippi Indians of pre-Columbus Illinois, simply dream the same dreams and envision the same structures?

Robert M. Schoch,one of the world's preeminent geologists in recasting the date of the building of the Great Sphinx, believes otherwise. In this dramatic and meticulously reasoned book, Schoch, like anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl in his classic Kon-Tiki, argues that ancient cultures traveled great distances by sea. Indeed, he believes that primeval sailors traveled from the Eastern continent, primarily Southeast Asia, and spread the idea of pyramids across the globe, particularly to the New World of the Americas where they abounded until the days of the Conquistadors.”
