Grandfather left his grandson a seafarer’s chest, a parrot called Titanic and a dream – the dream of looking for Atlantis. “Atlantis is right here all around you,” Grandfather said, “you have to learn how to look for it.” So when Grandfather dies, the boy starts looking: in the chest, on shelves, in books, under the stairs. Colin Thompson’s dazzingly detailed pictures richly illustrate the boy’s magical journey of discovery.
Explores the story of Atlantis from many theoretical perspectives and the presence of Atlantis in art and literature
THE YEAR WAS 2070 A.D. and the past years hung heavy on the planet Earth. The golden age of recycling had literally smashed headlong into the wanton destruction of desert warfare of years before. As it had many times in the past, mankind's demand for his neighbors landLegends become real. And reality becomes more unbelievable that anything you could ever dream! and the wealth it contained both on it and under it had brought carnage. Death this time was greedy, and it had demanded a larger share of the spoils. It had not been content to take just the souls of the fallen soldier's dying in the desert sand; no it wanted the innocent as well. Man found he contribute to his own death by burning oil well sites, killing whole town with poison gases. The land became a toxic wasteland; crude oil spills clogged the ocean and spilled onto beaches hundreds of miles away. In her dying gasp, Mother Nature lost control, Africa was now a total sand dune, and only bones remained of its once large herds of animals. The people could do nothing but die or be blown out into the ocean, which it self was dying South America was now more closely resembling old Africa, a vast expansion of treeless landscape slowly drying up from the heat. All over the world people cried out for water as cycles of drought plagued all countries. In her gasping breath, the once green Earth answered back, by delivering her life's blood back to the land. She melted the ice fields to bring the water back to the land. One man in California had the foresight to see what was coming and had created a means to wall off the land, and in doing so had created an island of life. He was a design engineer, with a gift of imagination few had. His talent is but to the test as he finds an ancient relic from a city that had been a fable in the minds of man for thousands of years. He discovers the artifact to be the key to visiting the living past, but he must look to the stars for the Atlantis of our lost legends, for he has found it to be a spaceship! Here is the story of how one mans changes the course of the history of Earth and countless galaxies millions of light years from him. By picking up a harmless looking crystal he finds contains within an ancient sphere whose origin is anywhere but earth's!
