Publisher's Summary

An investigation into the discoveries of Lewis and Clark and other early explorers of America and the terrible acts committed to suppress them.

  • Provides archaeological proof of giants, the fountain of youth, and descriptions from Lewis' journals of a tribe of "nearly white, blue-eyed" Indians
  • Uncovers evidence of explorers from Europe and Asia prior to Columbus and of ancient civilizations in North America and the Caribbean
  • Investigates the Smithsonian conspiracy to cover up Lewis and Clark's discoveries and what led to Lewis' murder

Meriwether Lewis discovered far more than the history books tell - ancient civilizations, strange monuments, "nearly white, blue-eyed" Indians, and evidence that the American continent was visited long before the first European settlers arrived. And he was murdered to keep it all secret.

Examining the shadows and cracks between America's official version of history, Xaviant Haze and Paul Schrag propose that the America of old taught in schools is not the America that was discovered by Lewis and Clark and other early explorers. Investigating the discoveries of Spanish conquistadors and Olmec stories of contact with European-like natives, the authors uncover evidence of explorers from Europe and Asia prior to Columbus, sophisticated ancient civilizations in North America and the Caribbean, the fountain of youth, and a long-extinct race of giants. Verifying stories from Lewis' journals with modern archaeological finds, geological studies, 18th- and 19th-century newspapers, and accounts of the world in the days of Columbus, the authors reveal how Lewis and Clark's finds infuriated powerful interests in Washington - including the Smithsonian Institution - culminating in the murder of Meriwether Lewis.

Don't Bother

I am very much intrigued by all things historical and most conspiracy theories. This Spring I'm planning on following the Lewis and Clark Trail and thought this would interest me. This book is incredibly tedious - starting with a 45 minute "forward" which does little more than repeat itself. The book then proceeds with some very familiar stories, belaboring and lengthening them until they compose a "book". Give this one a miss.

Ugh. ..nothing but giants in America.

Ugh. ..nothing but giants in America. It was hard to listen to his story. It had potential, but fell short of interesting.

Intriguing but hollow...

It made me want to learn more about the mound builders and question why there hasn't been any extensive excavation of these sites when there is no connection to existing native tribes. It made me want to learn more about the Mandan. But that has little to do with the death of Lewis and the motivations for killing him. I found the descriptions of what happened at Griner's Stand to be plausible given the circumstances and not unreasonable. The painting of Lewis' companions as less than reliable is good and we know that this was a dangerous place in a dangerous time. But I can also imaging the tremendous sense of accomplishment and then loss that must come from a journey like the one shared by Lewis and Clark. After living a wild existence in an alien world amongst alien people's while pursuing a singular goal, the world of politics and the responsibilities that come with it must seem both heavy and yet shallow. Unfulfilling. It could create something like PTSD, you've been to the mountaintop and now... What?

great read!

Amazing work that will make you question every narrative you thought you knew about our past. this book takes you on an adventure with two of the most famous explorers known to man. It helps you to understand the turmoil facing a newly forming nation in its earliest years of infancy and the even harder circumstances faced by the previous occupants of that beautiful landscape. sometimes the objective is not what we think, even if we are the ones pursuing it .

Beyond Text Books- Surprising/Could Change Attitudes

This book contains information about the Spanish explorers, mounds discovered with artifacts, and evidence of Giants in Texas. In Chapter 4-5, friendly tribes seem to include blue-eyed natives with Ancient English and Biblical Legends- also able to understand English easily. Similar to other tribes, they sometimes were at war and sometimes peace with other tribes. Good for chilfren and adolescents! No curses or obscenities! Yeah!

Interesting theories

The authors spin out a number of intriguing theories about that cause one to wonder about the origins of Native Americans, and question if there has been a two century long conspiracy of sorts to hide the truth about much of the accepted history of past North American civilizations. Much of the evidence stems from journals and writings of early explorers up to the mission of Lewis and Clark. It would seem that with modern DNA testing can solve some of the mysteries that have yet to be solved.

The strange death of Meriwhether Lewis is the highlight of the final chapters. This too raises a number of questions and theories that causes the reader (listener) to wonder how Lewis met his fate.

If you're into this kind of stuff, this is a good read.
