I worked with the author of Saga America because I lived nearby one on the sites he discussed, the source for the INYO ZODIAC. Originally, I was quite skeptical, but became convinced that Fell was correct. Besides the recognition of the Zodiac, Fell also found a notation that seemed to refer to the Vernal Equinox. That led to the discovery of the functions of a complete solar observatory. This book is a true landmark in epigraphic research. The good Professor Fell is no longer with us, but this book will help his memory last forever.

Barry Fell's 3 books on European and Mediterreanian peoples exploration/colonization of North America are the best and most important work on this subject I've ever seen. I am trying to find copies of Saga America and Bronze Age America, having purchased America B.C. a few years back. It isn't politically correct writing that he did, but it was all true.

I am sad to see that most of Barry Fell's work is either out of print or going out of print. If you think you have American pre-history "wired", you better think again. This is not pseudo-history; it is the work of a chair of University history department and it is based on well-founded research and documentation. Forget the "Siberian Ice Bridge" and other things that are the distant past and consider the evidence for Libyan sailors on the Mississippi River - and Hebraic script transcriptions in a "prehistoric" cave in Los Lunas, New Mexico - I could just go on and on.... in short - get this before it cannot be had anymore. I am just amazed that such things go out of print....

Saga America is volume 2 of the groundbreaking series by Barry Fell that introduced thousands to possible pre-columbus voyages to America. People opposed to that idea often sling mud at Fell, but he is no fringe writer. He was a respected scholar who earned the support of many other scholars (his critics fail to mention this). As Fell points out, many blantly ignored accounts and artifacts of Vikings right up until ruins were found in Canada. Afterwards, they still clung to "no one before Columbus except a few wayward Vikings." Decades later, the opposition to Fell and others like him is not as great as people see the pre-1492 Americas as an ancient and sophisticated world. Sure, some of the book is dated, but this is still a classic in the field. Maybe not every one of his translations is perfect, but what about the rest? Hopefully someone will reprint Fell's books.

I remember this book in my father's library growing up. It was neat to read it again, this time as an adult who has been able to read more, and visit places rich in the early history of our land. So much in our history has been ignored and buried in the science/archaeology field. It is so good to find those who aren't afraid to acknowledge, and study what is speaking to us from the past. There is so much to learn! A fascinating book! I am so glad to have it a part of our library now!!!

among the important books that i stockpile in case civilization as we know it collapses. at least i am not as crazy as my mother who stockpiled steel Chinese checker boards, pogo sticks and violins under her bed. i have filing cabinets full of important books such as this one under my bed.

it you do not know Barry Fell's work begin with reading America BC, but don't wait to buy this and Bronze Age America, because by the time you need then i may have got them all.

as an example of the wisdom you gain from these books, i got some petroglyph books by the best known 'mainstream' scientists, and found they had air brushed out the ogam messages in some important rock panel representations as 'grafitti', and guessed at what the more interesting looking inscriptions meant, missing the actual meaning that is relevant information to the lives of the people who did the inscriptions.

so the whole science of the inscriptions is being taught to the people as a lot of Ancient people who had nothing to do but lie around an doodle, and i sometimes seem like the only one who knows what they thought was important enough to record, and have no one to talk to about it

if only i could find an age appropriate man who has read these books and owns a backhoe.

I had read Dr. Fell's first book, America B.C., and so I was anxious to continue the fabulous information. This book is NOT a disappointment...it is full of valuable information. There are so many illustrations. Some of the information may eventually be proven not accurate, but it is the best information on previously unrecognized civilizations and colonizations in North America that I have come across. Dr. Barry Fell was such a learned man. What a great loss when he died prematurely. My only problem here was that the used book I purchased has fallen apart. It arrived in good condition, but must have never been read before and must have been stored in a hot area. It was so dried out that once I cracked it open the spine broke and many groups of pages fell out...I am going to to see a repair for it, as I really value the book. I ahve wanted it for a long time and I wish to own it for a while still.
