Abstract:
This [book] endures as proof that Earth has been visited repeatedly by advanced aliens from other worlds. [The author] examines ancient ruins, lost cities, spaceports, and a myriad of hard scientific facts that point to extraterrestrial intervention in human history. Most incredible of all, however, is [the author's] theory that we ourselves are the descendants of these galactic pioneers - and the archaeological finds that prove it.-Back cover.
