Riassunto: Nine true adventure stories from the Chronicles of Forbidden History. Introduced by the renowned British author Gavin Menzies, the book features chapters on New World voyages by Egyptian Pharaoh-Queen Hatshepsut (c. 1500 BC), King Solomon, Tzu Fu, Marco Polo, Franciscan monk Nicholas of Lynn, Zheng He, Martin Behaim, Amerigo Vespucci, the Cabots, Queen Elizabeth and Francis Drake. Themes include the vital role of women and ethnic minorities, espionage, and ancient cartography of the Americas before Columbus. Profusely illustrated--including first publication of 1425 Ming Map showing the Americas, maize on a 1470 BC Egyptian mural, 440 AD Roman map of Florida, and Drake's "clock map" of the West Coast in 1579.
L'autore: Gunnar Thompson has been called the "Sherlock Holmes of American History" and "the leading expert" on voyages to America before Columbus. A magna cum laude graduate of the University of Illinois, he discovered proof that Chinese voyagers brought the Taoist Omnibus Power Sign to Mexico circa 500 BC. In May of 2005, he spoke at the Library of Congress. In 2006, he was called to Beijing to authenticate a 1418 Ming Map showing the New World. Indian statesman Vine Deloria, Thor Heyerdahl, Philip Phillips, Betty Meggers, and Gavin Menzies have all praised the author's cutting edge research. A popular public speaker and humorist, he has appeared on US, Chinese, Japanese, Norwegian, and British educational television.
