Review

"Essential book on the existence of giant skeletons and giant races in the Americas. It catalogues, chronicles and records original accounts and assesses their authenticity and reality, with a great summary of all the evidence to date. A perfect addition to the ancient mysteries bookshelf." - Andrew Collins, author of Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods

This is the best ancient giant book I've ever read, and, let me tell you, I've read a few. The research is impeccable, and the authors don't attempt to foist their own views onto the reader. Unlike many others, the authors spend little time debunking, moaning, and groaning over establishment views, but instead set about proving their own case with reliable and thoughtful evidence

Awesome book that compiles not only legends of giants but also real newspaper articles and accounts of the unearthing of giant bones. Great photos and documentation. What I like the most is that the authors present all the information they have and then often ask the reader to decide for themselves what the real answer may be. I think the authors convey great knowledge and immense research on such an interesting subject. They give great details on all the interesting findings and present the information intelligently but with a nice flair for adventure. Clearly they are passionate about finding the truth, getting the facts, and presenting an interesting story. I hope to see more books from them as their research continues.

Any doubts about prehistoric giants are laid to rest by hundreds of pages of evidence. What is sad is that our supposedly scientifically independent folks at the Smithsonian destroyed evidence under the guise of religion and destroying something that would challenge their flat earth notions. I think a POV to try to integrate the legends and archeological evidence would have moved this to 5 stars for me, but the authors feel that a preponderance of evidence and acceptance of the evidence is the first step... problem is without some back story this will never happen because this is too big of a shock for the unwashed masses

Jim and Hugh have put together what is by far the best compilation of everything that is known about the reports of "giant" skeletons recovered in America from the 1700s to the late 1900s. They included a thoughtful summary of the influence of hoaxed reports and exaggerations that have clouded our modern view of these anomalous finds and what is left is a mystery. You won't find any wild or utterly fantastic claims in it. The unvarnished truth is that many huge human skeletons were genuinely found in mounds, stone chambers, and what are thought to be Native American grave sites. These cluster around a range of 7 to 8 feet in eight, but there are credible reports of far larger ones. The book is well illustrated and contains excellent sections from Ross Hamilton. Unlike Dewhurst's awful hodgepodge of of newspaper clippings (many of which were repeated), Giants on Record is a well organized, logical, and thoroughly researched book. Dr. Greg Little

Got this for my son. He enjoys it, but we find the last part with the Nephilim stuff and all, out in la-la land. Would like to find a book with more and better photographs that are vetted, and less stuff about esoteric theorizing and obscure articles of dubious sourcing, though they do have a place in the chronicling of such material.

Very interesting subject matter and extremely well researched, however, can be redundant as the accounts of bones, mounds etc. are essentially the same. All in all though, a good hard look at an obscure subject.

Like most people, I thought that stories of giants associated with the building of mounds and other ancient sites were the result of the mythology that surrounds the sites, including stories of the Devil being involved, and people turned to stone for dancing on the Sabbath. However, having read the tour-de-force Giants on Record, by Hugh Newman and Jim Vieira and, I have now changed my mind. The avalanche of evidence unearthed by the authors leaves the reader with no option but to agree with them. Illustrations include photo-copies of many original news headlines and stories that repeatedly say the massive bones from many ancient graves were taken away for study by the Smithsonian, who now deny all knowledge of many of these bones, even though their own records confirm they once had them. The reasons why this conspiracy of silence has occurred are even more controversial! This is essential reading for anyone interested in history, archaeology, or ancient sites.

This is a fantastic book. I have another book about giants but this has a lot of new material that is really fascinating. It is obviously written by authors that are passionate about the material. I love reading it!
