About this title

Synopsis:

Nazca, once only an isolated settlement in the midst of the Peruvian desert, is today the meeting place for archaeologists from around the world. From here you can fly over the celebrated Nazca pampa and appreciate the massive scale of the extraordinary markings on the surrounding landscape. Some of these lines are over twenty kilometers long!

Drawing on over thirty years of study, Erich von Daniken examines the various theories that attempt to explain the Nazca phenomena in terms of religious ritual, ancient roads, and astrological symbols. With the help of numerous photographs taken by the author-half-hanging from a small airplane-he describes the many mysteries of Nazca and puts forward a startling revolutionary solution to one of archaeology's greatest enigmas.

Review:

In the 1970s, Erich von Däniken sparked a wave of public and scientific debate with Chariots of the Gods?, which postulated that certain archaeological sites pointed to earthly visits by extraterrestrials in the predawn of human history. Since then his ideas have been both attacked as ludicrous and praised as genius, but Däniken himself steers a middle course and simply maintains that his theory is the logical conclusion to be drawn from the evidence. In his latest book, Arrival of the Gods, Däniken returns to South America in search of further proof supporting his ideas, but instead of regurgitating photos and measurements of the familiar scratch drawings on the Nazca plain, he flies to the Palpa mountains, where he finds his evidence, among other things, in the form of giant mandalas and an enormous grid of lines that closely resembles the landing aids found in modern airports. Color photographs of Däniken's discoveries burst from the pages of Arrival of the Gods, accompanied by prose that barely contains his contagious excitement over these striking earthworks. Anyone who has previously dismissed Däniken's work out of hand should beware: there is much more going on here than the odd prattlings of a single subversive author. --Brian Patterson
