Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback: Josh Bernstein, host of The History Channe‛s hit series Digging for the Truth, takes readers beyond the cameras for an even closer look at his adventures through some of the most intriguing places on the planet.

No location is too dangerous, no terrain too rough, no culture too exotic for explorer and survival expert Josh Bernstein. With his unique hands-on approach, he travels the globe, seeking answers to some of the most enigmatic mysteries of the ancient world. Digging for the Truth shares Jos‛s personal stories, journals, and insights, revealing the risks and dangers of what went on behind the scenes in shooting the show, and the fascinating details about what he uncovers along each adventure. Readers are right in the action as he:

• Discovers who built Egyp‛s pyramids and learns what secrets may be buried below the Sphinx.

• Follows the trail of the Lost Ark of the Covenant to the remote monasteries and churches of Ethiopia.

• Sails a Viking ship on a quest to determine if the Vikings landed in the New World five hundred years before Columbus.
