Riassunto: This is a reconstruction of a lost story about a Sumerian king named Ziusudra, later known as Noah, who was king of the city-state Shuruppak about 2900 BC when a local river flood submerged his city. This book combines six surviving ancient versions of the flood story, separates the myth from the legend, and determines what the ark was, where it grounded (not on Mt. Ararat), where the flood hero sacrificed to the gods, and what he did afterwards.
L'autore: The author was born in Pennsylvania and received a BS degree in Physics from Carnegie-Mellon University.
