Product Details


From the N.Y. Times Book Review: a front cover welcome for Richard Ellis’

"Entertaining, thorough account"

of the lost island of Atlantis, the legend of whose downfall was created by Plato and has for two and a half millennia fascinated everyone from Francis Bacon to Jules Verne to Jacques Cousteau and the mythmakers of many cultures.

Quite simply the best book on Atlantis ever written…Anyone interested in lost civilizations should look no further.–Brian Fagan, Los Angeles Times

Ellis takes us on a magnificent journey that leads us to a better understanding of earthquakes, tsunamis, flood myths, volcanology, architecture, archaelogy, the works of Jules Verne and Arthur Conan Doyle…A real treat–Daniel McMahon, Washington Post

Engaging, lucid, and full of lore–The New Yorker
