  • A continuation of previous books examining the reach of Chinese explorers. -Includes bibliographic references and index. -With meticulous research and an adventurer's spirit, Menzies has uncovered astounding new evidence that calls into question everything about mankind's peopling of the American continents - from theories of ancient man's initial migration there to Columbus's fateful voyage. Traveling to the far-flung reaches of the earth, Menzies offers a revolutionary new alternative to the Beringia theory of how the human race crossed a land bridge connecting Asia and North America during the last Ice Age; in truth, ancient seafaring voyages had brought travelers to the Americas thousands of years prior
