Lost Cities author Childress takes us deep into Mexico and Central America in search of the mysterious Olmecs, North Americas early advanced civilization. Sometimes called Proto-Mayans, the Olmecs were not acknowledged to have existed as a civilization until an international archeological meeting in Mexico City in 1942, though their megalithic statues, ceramics and other artifacts pre-dated all other Central American cultures. But who were the Olmecs? Where did they come from? What happened to them? How sophisticated was their culture? How far back in time did it go? Why are many Olmec statues and figurines seemingly of foreign peoples such as Africans, Europeans and Chinese? Is there a link with Atlantis? In this heavily illustrated book, join Childress as he searches for the answers.
