Delve into the forgotten dimension of ancient Native American life, culture, and spirituality. Filled with unique and previously unpublished research and based on the findings of many scholars, scientists, and explorers, this fascinating survey offers a well-rounded portrait of an enigmatic world. Consider evidence about the origins of the Native American people, including the earliest accepted and disputed signs of their presence. Examine the myth-worlds and religions of the Native Americans, including Shamanism and the widespread use of mind-altering plants. Find out what is known about such lost civilizations as the Olmec, Maya, Inca, and Anasazi. Look at the role astronomy, rock art, and sacred landscapes played in these civilizations, and investigate one of the greatest puzzles in ancient America-the existence of curious ground markings, including the famous Nazca lines. Finally, identify some of the vestigial survivals of ancient traditions and practices in modern Native American culture.
