DISCOVER THE SECRET PLACES THAT TIME FORGOT. There are places that turn up in literature or in film - mystical and legendary places whose names may be familiar, but about which we know little. We nod knowingly at the reference, but are often left wondering about places such as Atlantis, the lost land overwhelmed by the sea, or El Dorado, the fabulous city that vanished somewhere in the South American jungles. Other names are more evocative - the Garden of Eden, the mystic Isle of Avalon, and Davy Jones's Locker. But did such places actually exist and, if so, where were they, and what really happened? What are the traditions and legends associated with them? In this fascinating book, historian Dr. Bob Curran sets or to find the answers by journeying to the far-flung corners of the world and to the outer reaches of human imagination. Inside you will: ...Climb the high mountains in search of the mythical Shangri-La...Navigate the deep swamps and jungles in a quest for the Seven Cities of Gold...Travel to the depths of the dark oceans to look for sunken lands such as Lemuria and Lyonesse...Experience unspeakable danger in a realm rarely visited by men - the subterranean lair of Judaculla. ..Uncover the secrets of Heliopolis, Yggradsil, Hy-Brasil, the Kingdom of Prester John, and the Hollow Hills. Filled with lavish illustrations by acclaimed artist Ian Daniels, Lost Lands, Forgotten Realms takes you on a wonderful and sometimes terrifying journey combining mythological and legendary tales with historical fact. Psychologist and historian
