Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tales and legends of the wee folk, or little people, are numerous around the world. At times they are reportedly meddlesome, but always very mysterious. Through her extensive research into the subject matter, Susan Martinez, Ph.D., establishes the little people as the progenitor of civilization and one of the ancestors of the people of today.” (Jack Churchward, author of Lifting the Veil on the Lost Continent of Mu, Motherland of Men)

“Those who have read any of Susan Martinez’ prior works know her to be a consummate story teller, an encyclopedia of knowledge pertinent to her subjects, and one, bolstered by her beliefs, unafraid to shoot detractors from the hip, hence The Lost History of the Little People will not disappoint. For those new to her style and content, attracted by the subject, you can expect a panoramic guided tour of countries, civilizations and cultures, replete with facts, fables, figures and illustrations.” (Marvin E. Herring)

“Martinez’s conclusion that the Little People are the real missing link in the history of humanity is supported by worldwide evidence, including pygmy tunnels, elf arrows, dwarf villages and tiny coffins. Her book is lavishly illustrated with photos, diagrams and artistic renderings that bring to life an astonishing view of our biological and cultural origins. Those who are curious about such things will find themselves spellbound by her vision.” (Metaguide Magazine, September 2013)

“Susan Martinez has amassed more information in a single volume about the so-called little people than any other research of its kind. This new book offers invaluable, otherwise obscure, resource materials in a presentation as thorough as it is engaging.” (Frank Joseph, author of Atlantis and 2012, The Lost Civilization of Lemuria, and Advanced Civilizati)

Format: Paperback
Several others have read Martinez's book and seen problems with how she organizes and presents her evidence. I saw these same problems, especially how she sets her theories up antagonistically against mainstream concepts of evolution and religion. I can understand why reviewers have been less than accepting of her theories, which are in part based on fringe bible called the Oahspe, written only slightly more than 130 years ago.

These criticisms should not detract from the substantial amount of "new" information on language and genetics, which implicate hybridization of closely related Homo species and subspecies. The addition of spiritual and religious data will undoubtedly preclude acceptance by most mainstream anthropologists and archaeologists. Add to that her poor citation of information sources (those which she does cite are selective and not inclusive), and her missing of key references to books on Little People, mythology, and the Ice Age, makes me question how well-researched and thought out her theories are.

For example, she cites Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock (1995), but makes no reference to his more scientifically presented evidence for a Pacific continent in Underworld, published in 2002. She missed what Hancock shows the Pacific islands would have looked like at a lower sea level during the last Ice Age, which supports in part her concept of Pan. She needed to consult a geologist, who might have kept her from hypothesizing an enormous continent (i.e., Pan) in the middle of the Pacific ocean, and instead opted for more extensive emergence of islands in the South Pacific and Indonesia, which Hancock (2002) shows were interconnected by land at low sea level as recently as 17,000 years ago.

Susan B. Martinez is unusual among advocates/users of blatantly non-standard methods in comparative historical linguistics in that she has a semi-relevant PhD (in Anthropology, from Columbia) and indeed a specialisation in ethnolinguistics. Perhaps she has never studied the specifically HISTORICAL aspects of the discipline, but even then her approach (nowadays typical only of untutored amateurs) is surprising. If she IS familiar with historical linguistics but REJECTS mainstream thinking on the methodology of the subject, she should state this openly and should ARGUE for her own position.

Martinez's shift away from mainstream thought (on linguistic and other issues) seems to be connected with her discovery in 1981 of the `Oahspe Bible', a tome produced in 1882 by John Ballou Newbrough by way of automatic writing. This work represents itself as containing new revelations from `the Embassadors of the angel hosts of heaven prepared and revealed unto man in the name of Jehovih'. Much of the Oahspe material involves non-standard accounts of early human history. Martinez embraced these notions and they occupy a central place in her subsequent work, where there are many specific references to the Oahspe text as if it were historically authoritative

Oahspe itself contains some strange linguistic material: it is connected with `Mantong' as promoted by Richard Shaver (see pp. 102-103 of my 2013 book Strange Linguistics), and the text begins with a three-page glossary of `strange words used in this book'; these are a peculiar mixture of known words and phrases from English (such as angel) or other human languages (such as Abracadabra) - many of them re-defined in Oahspian terms - and unfamiliar words.

Format: Paperback
According to the author there was an advanced species of little people that convered the face of the Earth before the advanet of mankind. When mankind started taking over they started dissappearing almost without a trace. Yet traces, a few of them were found. In certain parts of the United States mounds were found. They contained the bones of tiny elf like people. They were brushed off as the graves of children yet they showed signs of being Middle Aged adults. Cheyene legend hold that thre were a race of people called Nunehi who lived in barrow or underground. These nunehi taught the Nativgge Americans about the use of herbs and medicines plus the use of tool and technology. They were the teachers of mankind.

All around the world there are societies of little people. The bushmen of the Congo, Negrito in Indonesia, Negrillos in the Phillipines and the Andamans in the continent of South America. Moreover thre are legends of these little people deocumented the world over ranging from Greek, Roman, Sumerian, Irish, Norse and Native American. THe little people of today live in forests, underground dwellings and high mountainous areas. As the big humans encroach they die off and their numbers become fewer.

In the barrows that have been unearthed advanced tools have been found indeicating that these guys knew how to build and manufacture tools way beofre homo sapiens even came around. They passed their skills to us. Since their number are diminshing ( the author says they are extinct, at least the original ones) one day there will be few signes of them left. For one the author says they cremate their dead, number two is that they were transformed into gods. Most poignant would be in Egypt the Gods Ptah and Bess. Origninally they were small now they are eleveated to giants.
