“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)

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.
