About the Author

Dr. John Weihaupt, great-great-great-great nephew of Captain William Clark of Northwest Territories fame, and of George Rogers Clark, is a world explorer with, in particular, explorations in Alaska, Newfoundland, Canada, Chile, South America, and three expeditions to Antarctica. His field work and research are largely in geophysics and geology, and he is credited with the discovery of the Wilkes Land Gravity Anomaly, that may be the largest meteorite impact crater on Earth, lying beneath two miles of ice in East Antarctica. He is also co-discoverer of the USARP Mountain Range in Victoria Land, Antarctica, co-discoverer of the Wilkes Subglacial Basin in Antarctica, and he is credited with the discovery of the Orontius Finaeus map of Antarctica which predates the traditional date of discovery of that continent by some three centuries. That ancient discovery, and the role of Earth’s vacillating climate in changing the course of human exploratory history, is what this book is about. For his contributions to polar exploration and research, Mount Weihaupt, a mountain in Victoria Land, Antarctica, has been named for Dr. Weihaupt by the United States National Science Foundation, the United States Geological Survey, and the International Board on Geographic Names.

As a scientist, Weihaupt has moved into the field of history with a scientific approach. He considers a number of hypotheses for the various explanations of the mystery he has uncovered, and tests each one. I found this to be a fascinating book and would recommend it.
