The Lost Realms, the fourth book of Zecharia Sitchin’s Earth Chronicles series, transports readers to the pre-Columbian civilizations and ancient empires of the Americas, revealing hitherto unrecognized golden links between ancient Near Eastern civilizations and the "cities of the gods" of the Olmecs, Mayas, Aztecs and Incas.

About The Lost Realms (Book IV)

The Earth Chronicles series is based on the premise that mythology is not fanciful but the repository of ancient memories; that the Bible ought to be read literally as a historic/scientific document; and that ancient civilizations--older and greater than assumed--were the product of knowledge brought to Earth by the Anunnaki, "Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came."

The 12th Planet, the first book of the series, presents ancient evidence for the existence of an additional planet in the Solar System: the home planet of the Anunnaki. In confirmation of this evidence, recent data from unmanned spacecraft has led astronomers to actively search for what is being called "Planet X."

The subsequent volume, The Stairway to Heaven, traces man's unending search for immortality to a spaceport in the Sinai Peninsula and to the Giza pyramids, which had served as landing beacons for it--refuting the notion that these pyramids were built by human pharaohs. Recently, records by an eye witness to a forgery of an inscription by the pharaoh Khufu inside the Great Pyramid corroborated the book's conclusions.

The Wars of Gods and Men, recounting events closer to our times, concludes that the Sinai spaceport was destroyed 4,000 years ago with nuclear weapons. Photographs of Earth from space clearly show evidence of such an explosion.

Such gratifying corroboration of audacious conclusions has been even swifter for The Lost Realms. In the relatively short interval between the completion of the manuscript and its publication, archaeologists, linguists, and other scientists have offered a "coastal theory" in lieu of the "frozen trekking" one to account for man's arrival in the Americas--in ships, as this volume has concluded. These experts have "suddenly discovered 2,000 years of missing civilization" in the words of a Yale University scholar--confirming this book's conclusion--and are now linking the beginnings of such civilizations to those of the Old World, as Sumerian texts and biblical verses.

For the first time, the entire Earth Chronicles series is now available in a hardcover collector's edition.

"Exciting . . . credible . . . most provocative and compelling."
Library Journal

"Sitchin's works are outstandingly different from all others that present this central theme. His linguistic skills in the languages of antiquity and his pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photographs and line drawings appearing in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, and seals."
Rosemary Decker, historian and researcher

"Sitchin is a zealous investigator into man's origins . . . a dazzling performance."

When the Spanish conquistadors came to the New World in search of EI Dorado, the fabled city of gold, they instead found stone edifices of massive proportions mysteriously constructed in inaccessible regions--huge monuments built with a skill level and tools yet unknown to the indigenous cultures of that part of the world.

In The Lost Realms, Zecharia Sitchin combines archaeological, mythological, and textual evidence to uncover links between ancient Near Eastern and prehistoric American civilizations--links that explain the Pyramids and "cities of the gods" in Mexico, the Mayan mastery of astronomy, the secrets of the Olmec calendar, and the presence of the oldest metropolis in the Americas on the shores of Lake Titicaca. He discloses answers to the puzzles of the ancient American civilizations-answers that strongly suggest the involvement of "gods" from another planet who made Earth their home.
