America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization by Graham Hancock

America Before (2019) is a mind-expanding quest for an ancient and lost way of life. Drawing on lesser-known DNA and archeological evidence, it proposes the existence of a great, early civilization based in North America. Lost to history in the aftermath of a cataclysmic comet strike, this civilization is visible today only in the traces it left in Egyptian, Native American and other great ancient cultures.

  • Anyone looking for an imaginative adventure into the past
  • Historians and archeologists willing to challenge the established view

Graham Hancock has devoted his life to discovering an ancient lost civilization. A best-selling author who has been scoffed at by establishment archeologists and scholars around the world, Hancock has set out his theories in best-selling titles including Magicians of the Gods: The Forgotten Wisdom of Earth’s Lost Civilization, and Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest Continues.
