Arrival of the Gods: Revealing the Alien Landing Sites of Nazca Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nazca, once only an isolated settlement in the midst of the Peruvian desert, is today the meeting place for archaeologists from around the world. From here you can fly over the celebrated Nazca pampa and appreciate the massive scale of the extraordinary markings on the surrounding landscape. Some of these lines are over twenty kilometers long!

Drawing on over thirty years of study, Erich von Däniken examines the various theories that attempt to explain the Nazca phenomena in terms of religious ritual, ancient roads, and astrological symbols. With the help of numerous photographs taken by the author—half-hanging from a small airplane—he describes the many mysteries of Nazca and puts forward a startling revolutionary solution to one of archaeology's greatest enigmas.

Synopsis:

Erich von Daniken returns to the location of his greatest success—the plains of Nazca, where he flies over the strangest of archaeological mysteries and comes up with a new and totally surprising solution.

About the Author

Erich von Daniken's first book, Chariots of the Gods, became a worldwide bestseller following its publication in 1968 and has been translated into thirty-two languages. It has since been followed by over two dozen additional books, including The Eyes of the Sphinx, Odyssey of the Gods, and The Gods Were Astronauts. Born and educated in Switzerland, Erich is an active researcher and explorer. His books have given rise to two full-length documentary films, Chariots of the Gods and Messages of the Gods, and he has delivered over 3,000 lectures in twenty-five countries. He lives in Beatenberg, Switzerland, with his wife. John Allen Nelson's critically acclaimed roles on television's 24 and Vanished are among the highlights of his twenty-five-plus years as an actor, screenwriter, and film producer. As a narrator, he won an AudioFile Earphones Award for his reading of Zoo Story by Thomas French.
