If you read and enjoy this book, I think you'll also enjoy Ariadne's brother: A novel on the fall of Bronze Age Crete. It doesn't employ the two-time-periods conceit, and instead of being a geographer, it's author is an academic who researches archaeology. Like the Dobson brothers, Dempsey offers theories about the past while fleshing out stories that have been passed along to us from ancient peoples. Both the Dobsons and Dempsey seem to recognize that their theories are not ready for prime time in academic and scientific journals, so present them as fiction. We get a sneak peek into the musings of men who have spent years researching, studying, and pondering the meaning of all they have uncovered.
It's a mystery to me why books like these seem to have so few readers. But then again, it's a mystery to me who actually buys and reads the magazines at the supermarket checkout lane.
And be glad for Amazon -- this book does not appear even once in the online catalog for all of the public libraries in my region. How can that be?
it! I will look for other books by this author, and books with that ancient/modern weave. Makes the history come alive, similar to Michener's tomes, but with more twist. As for that theory of the rising waters, it makes sense and actually makes one think about preparing for the "fast rise" likely when the Ice melts, again, in 5 or 10 thousand years from now. :-)
Should be required reading for those who are skeptical about rising water levels. Very imaginatively done.
