Meet Me in Atlantis PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Meet Me in Atlantis free pdf Adventurous, inquisitive and mirthful, Mark Adams gamely sifts through the eons of rumor, science, and lore to find a place that, in the end, seems startlingly real indeed. Hampton Sides Infused with humor and pop culture references, Adams makes what could have been a tedious recitation of theories into an exciting adventure. -"Chicago Tribune" Writing with the same jaunty style as"Turn Right at Machu Picchu," Adams merrily entertains the lost-cities audience. "Booklist" A few years ago, Mark Adams made a strange discovery: Far from alien conspiracy theories and other pop culture myths, everything we know about the legendary lost city of Atlantis comes from the work of one man, the Greek philosopher Plato. Stranger still: Adams learned there is an entire global sub-culture of amateur explorers who are still actively and obsessively searching for this sunken city, based entirely on Plato s detailed clues. What Adams didn t realize was that Atlantis is kind of like a virus and he d been exposed. In"Meet Me in Atlantis," Adamsracks up frequent-flier miles tracking down these Atlantis obsessives, trying to determine why they believe it's possible to find the world's most famous lost city and whether any of their theories could prove or disprove its existence. The result is a classic quest that takes readers to fascinating locations to meet irresistible characters- and a deep, often humorous look at the human longing to rediscover a lost world.
