Editorial Reviews

Review

“Another key piece in the mystery of Atlantis falls into place. Further essential reading for the discerning Atlantologist.” (Andrew Collins, author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gateway to Atlantis)

“With exacting scholarship that moves at the pace of a compelling detective story, Frank Joseph brilliantly provides a wealth of evidence that the survivors of Atlantis greatly influenced and shaped the history of many early civilizations.” (Brad Steiger, author of Mysteries of Time and Space)

"This is not the story of Atlantis and its downfall. It is a view of the impact of Atlantean culture and civilization on the rest of the Bronze Age world. It is an excellent addition to the library of anyone interested in the subject." (Mike Gleason, Witchgrove, 2007)

From the Back Cover

ANCIENT MYSTERIES / NEW AGE

“Another key piece in the mystery of Atlantis falls into place. Further essential reading for the discerning Atlantologist.”
--Andrew Collins, author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gateway to Atlantis

“With exacting scholarship that moves at the pace of a compelling detective story, Frank Joseph brilliantly provides a wealth of evidence that the survivors of Atlantis greatly influenced and shaped the history of many early civilizations.”
--Brad Steiger, author of Mysteries of Time and Space

Archaeologists have long puzzled over the evidence suggesting highly sophisticated copper mining activity took place in the area of the North American Great Lakes some five thousand years ago. Menomonie Indian tradition speaks of fair-skinned mariners who had come in the past to “dig out the shiny bones” of the Earth Mother. Plato, meanwhile, recorded that Atlanteans had provided an exceptionally high grade of copper that was no longer available in his time. In this sequel to The Destruction of Atlantis Frank Joseph argues that the Menomonie Indians’ mariners were Atlanteans and that the destruction of Atlantis by war and natural catastrophe brought about the end of Bronze Age civilization. Furthermore, Atlantis’s survivors dispersed to all corners of the former island empire, including western Europe, the Near East, and North and South America.

In Survivors of Atlantis Joseph provides an in-depth study of the Atlantean war and its intimate connections with the last of four great cosmic catastrophes generated by the cyclical return of a comet and its debris. This quartet of natural disasters was followed by mass migrations recorded in the histories of such diverse peoples as the Incas of Peru, the Celtic Irish, the classical Greeks, and the Aztecs of Mexico. Where the archaeology, mythology, astronomy, and geology of these cultures coincide, a common thread is exposed: Atlantis. Joseph shows that the fate of the Atlantean empire is the story of early civilization and reveals Atlantis to be a credible part of the world’s history.

FRANK JOSEPH is the editor in chief of Ancient American magazine and the author of The Destruction of Atlantis, Synchronicity and You, and The Lost Treasure of King Juba. He lives in Colfax, Wisconsin.

Format: Paperback
This book is a sequel or preequal to Joseph's previous work, THE DESTRUCTION OF ATLANTIS. While it's possible to enjoy it on it's own Joseph jumps right in with the new material rather than expending space rehashing his earlier book.So, a novice to the subject might feel a little lost.A great deal of the first book went into his theory that Atlantis was a Bronze Age civilization, 3200-5500 years old, approximately, rather than Plato's literal figures which put the destruction of Atlantis 10,500-11,600 years ago. Joseph is convinced that the final demise of Atlantis occurred ca.1200 B.C. when the Late Bronze age cultures of the Aegean and Near East collapsed,which was followed by an extended dark age.There is evidence of earthquakes, possible tsunamis, inexplicably severe fires and climatic deterioration.But similar evidence clusters around the transitions from the Middle to Late Bronze ages[ca.1750-1550 B.C.] and the Early to Middle Bronze Ages [ca.2350-2050 B.C.].Finally, there was such a period ca.3500-3100 B.C., at the beginning of recorded history.These events could represent Plato's four great catastrophes, though the philosopher put Atlantis demise prior to the first not the last of them.The reasons why Joseph reverses that sequence and reduces the dates overall are dealt with in the previous book.He makes a valiant attempt to correllate the evidence of these catastrophes with how they could have affected his proposed version of Atantis, and how as the title indicates their survivors impacted upon known contemporary cultures.He gives a convincing sketch of each event but one must be willing to accept his overall premise about when and where Atlantis existed first.Those seeking a paleolithic supercivilization and submerged continent sized landmasses will not find them here.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
The five stars are for the concept alone.

Since the delightfully goofy-titled "Atlantis in Wisconsin" it was clear that Joseph had a masterpiece in him and it's safe to say this is it.

Clearly presenting the information and deftly interpreting it, Joseph finally brings real history and science to a subject wrongly confined to the occult and speculative. Some of us have hiked and explored the copper country of Michigan and know very well history touched it -- but Joseph fills in the details and matches the evidence of archaeology with the records of history. In so doing, he begins our common history.

And you're in for loads of surprises if you think "Michigan" and "Wisconsin" and "Ontario" are sorely out of place when discussing the Bronze Age world of Egypt and Myceneae and Minoan Crete. Let Frank Joseph be your guide to the truth of the past and you'll see the world with new eyes.

Not a moment too soon, young people in North America can come to the realization that our past, too, stretches into antiquity. Our past, too, contains nobility and courage and adventure. This connection with our ancient roots is essential for rediscovering a modern love for the land that we must engender for our own rise to a "Great Civilization".

There's much more in Frank Joseph's book. His main gift is the ability to wake up the sense of wonder in his readers. A rare gift indeed and one greatly needed.

Format: Paperback
Although I am far from an expert, I found this book to be highly readable, easy to understand, and absolutely fascinating. This book fills in a huge gap left in human history, and ties up so many loose ends. I could not put this book down until the very end, and afterwords, it still left me wondering about how much our own society does not understand, how our species seems to suffer from a collective amnesia about its own past, and how much further we have to go. It is almost if humanity suffers from some post-traumatic stress syndrome, and I almost felt a sense of relief in a way after reading this.

I find it amazing how one culture could have such a profound impact on the every culture currently in existence, and disappear, literally, without a trace. It seems every culture, from Asia to America has been impacted by the Atlanteans in one form or another, and yet, no one can seem to recall their common heritage. And it seems no one has been able to tie all the threads together, until now.

Although I am sure the mere mention of the word "Atlantis" causes many to cringe, I feel it is essential, for the survival of our own culture and world that we seek to remember our own past and common heritage, lest we suffer the same end as the ill-fated Atlanteans. We cannot fully evolve in our own culture until we remember the whole of it.

This book ties together a few of the missing links in history. A great discussion of what was happening around the world in different cultures at the same time periods. Then the author links major cataclysmic events that coincided with changes in major world cultures. Unique, one of a kind book. Different perspective than other Atlantis books on the market.

Initially, I was extremely frustrated by the lack of footnotes, but as certain quotes grabbed my interest I started searching for the source in those cases he did reference them in the text. Virtually every source I checked was incorrectly cited: his quote from 'The Slaying of the Labu' was actually from Gilgamesh (Tablet 9); his reference to Enuma Elish should have been Atrahasis;his quote from the Affairs of the Water God cannot be found with a search engine; His reference to the Book of the Dead is actually McKenzie's Egyptian Myth and Legend; he is the only person to use the phrase Lam Abubia, and the correct spelling is 'Lam Abubi". If the writer pays so little attention to the detail,how can he be relied on for the big picture. If one is trying to challenge orthodox thinking about history, a sloppy presentation of facts is not the way to do it.
