Editorial Reviews

Review

“Set against the compelling backdrop of Lewis and Clark’s historic first crossing of the North American continent, The Suppressed History of America breaks new ground and provides interesting food for thought, both for traditional students of American history and for those intrigued by the call of unresolved ancient mysteries.” (Laird Scranton, author of The Cosmological Origins of Myth and Symbol and The Science of the Dogon)

The Suppressed History of America . . . is a refreshing new addition to the field of the alternative history of the United States. Well researched and written, this book will serve to increase the interest in the full story of the great American explorer Meriwether Lewis. The authors present a cogent argument that Lewis was probably murdered, partly to cover up the profound discoveries he and Clark made in the early nineteenth century.” (Stephen S. Mehler, author of The Land of Osiris and From Light Into Darkness)

“. . . The Suppressed History of America contains all the undertones of a surreptitious political thriller. Encounters with the legendary Mandan Indians who are said to be the descendants of Welsh seafarers and other tribes forever lost to westward expansion speak volumes of what may have been discovered on their journey.” (Fate Magazine, October 2011)

“Enhanced with a wealth of footnote documentation, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive index, The Suppressed History of America is a unique and seminal contribution highly recommended for community and academic library collections, as well as the personal reading lists of non-specialist general readers with an interest in American History as it is never taught in public education courses.” (Midwest Book Review, October 2011)

The Suppressed History of America is a thorough, well-documented, fast-paced exploration of the United States’ greatest mystery and adventure--the Lewis and Clark expedition.” (Ócháni Lele, author of Teachings of the Santería Gods and The Diloggún)

“Authors Schrag and Haze teach a fascinating lesson in what we will never be taught but what every American should know.” (Edward F. Malkowski, author of Sons of God--Daughters of Men, Before the Pharaohs, The Spiritual Tec)

From the Back Cover

US HISTORY / CONSPIRACY

“Authors Schrag and Haze teach a fascinating lesson in what we will never be taught but what every American should know.”
--Edward F. Malkowski, author of Sons of God--Daughters of Men, Before the Pharaohs, The Spiritual Technology of Ancient Egypt, and Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE

Meriwether Lewis discovered far more than the history books tell--ancient civilizations, strange monuments, “nearly white, blue-eyed” Indians, and evidence that the American continent was visited long before the first European settlers arrived. And he may have been murdered to keep it all secret.

Examining the shadows and cracks between America’s official version of history, Paul Schrag and Xaviant Haze propose that the America of old taught in schools is not the America that was discovered by Lewis and Clark and other early explorers. Investigating the discoveries of Spanish conquistadors and Olmec stories of contact with European-like natives, the authors uncover evidence of explorers from Europe and Asia prior to Columbus, sophisticated ancient civilizations in North America and the Caribbean, the fountain of youth, and a long-extinct race of giants. Verifying stories from Lewis’s journals with modern archaeological finds, geological studies, 18th- and 19th-century newspaper articles, and accounts of the world in the days of Columbus, the authors reveal how Lewis and Clark’s finds infuriated powerful interests in Washington--including the Smithsonian Institute--culminating in the murder of Meriwether Lewis.

PAUL SCHRAG is an award-winning journalist, novelist, marketing and business consultant, photographer, and musician. XAVIANT HAZE is a freelance researcher of ancient manuscripts and alternative history. His career as a music producer and DJ allows him to travel the world, exploring and documenting his findings on lost cities and the myths of the pre-diluvian world. Both authors live in Tacoma, Washington.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a lover of history, I was intrigued by the title of this book. Additionally as a member of the Lewis & Clark Trail Heritage Foundation I expected some new and informative data on the Lewis & Clark Expedition. The result, unfortunately, was disappointing. The authors touched on a number of interesting topics relating to ancient finds and discoveries throughout our country. Much of what they related to pointed to the fact that our history may well have gone back thousands of years earlier than what we normally consider as our earliest roots. There is much talk about ignoring of ancient arts, crafts, skeletons, etc. which indicate perhaps some scholars give little credence to some of the more controversial theories on early man. The problem with the book, however, is that it jumped around so much from item to item than none of it really tied together. Also, I really don't know what the significance of Lewis and Clark had to do with much of what they wrote. Nonetheless, the book did bring up some interesting points and the one benefit of it may be that it will urge you to do more research and reading on the history and background of our great country.

A friend handed me this book today and I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it (only 150 pgs±). This is one of those books that everybody should read -- or at least skim the reader's reviews at Amazon if you've no time or money for the book itself. THAT SAID... this book is *really* loosely constructed; with several threads woven together - most of them barely touching, yet all very interesting none-the-less and holding together perhaps only by static electricity. The fact that somebody could (and would) write a book this way and it would be worth reading is almost as intriguing as the subject matter.

What's the subject matter? Lewis and Clark journeyed through or near several areas known as the home grounds of several historical anomalies (or heresies); AND, the official journals for the Expedition contain several blatantly large gaps at some of the times when the Explorers would have been in or around the above-referenced neighborhoods. What anomalies (or heresies)? Oh, you know... the usual accounts of blue-eyed Indian tribes of Welsh descent; races of giants; Mound civilizations that probably weren't built by the "Indians" who lived near them at the dawn of American History; solid gold lockets complete with chain, found in coal bearing strata 240 million years old. Even that nasty, hateful Kennewick Man! That sort of stuff!

There's also the fact that Meriweather Lewis died under most mysterious circumstances, which were at the time called "suicide" (now where have we heard that before?), but it was more likely either simple murder and robbery by a criminal harridan running a lodging house on the old Natchez Trace, or assassination by either the Aaron Burr clan or President Jefferson's equivalent of whoever was offing people on the Clinton Body Count list.

Format: Paperback
I was attracted to this book because of the reference to Meriwether Lewis. The authors made so many obvious mistakes in their time line and geography that I promptly put the book down. On pp. 49-51 they have the Corps of Discovery meeting the Sioux before they explored Spirit Mound when in fact they explored Spirit Mound August 24, 1804, and had the confrontation with the Sioux beginning September 25, 1804. Then on p. 50 they say if Lewis and Clark had proceeded a few miles from Spirit Mound they would have seen Cahokia. Spirit Mound is in South Dakota. Cahokia is in Illinois across the Mississippi from St. Louis. If authors can't get easily checked facts straight, why would anyone even listen to, let alone believe, their complex theories?

Format: Paperback
Whenever I find a book that has "suppressed," "hidden" or "secret" in the title, I often think, "Here we go again, more off-the-wall theories." This book, however, is a pleasent suprise. The truth of early American history has been slowly trickling out. The view we were all taught - the natives were primitives, barely out of the the stone age and isolated from the rest of the world for many millenia - is being shown to be false. This book in some ways is a review of those changes and corrections. We know that those societies weren't so primitive and could accomplish great things and the authors reference the excellent 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus which helped people "rediscover" our past. The natives were also here for a very long time (see Settlement Of The Americas A New Prehistory & The First Americans: In Pursuit of Archaeology's Greatest Mystery). Perhaps if over 90% hadn't been killed from disease, maybe we would not have lost so much history.

Early in our country's history, many sought to minimize the natives to justify expansion and takeover of lands. Some just couldn't believe they had been anything sophisticated - so many had died. Others looked to the mounds and native legends and believed they they could have no part of these. People like Joseph Smith took these things and fashioned his Book of Mormon.
