Erich von Däniken’s monumental Chariots of the Gods changed the way generations have looked at mythology, ancient history, and the possibility of advanced beings from other worlds visiting Earth. Now he tackles the history of Greece and again challenges our beliefs about how our civilization arose.
Using painstaking archaeological research and evidence from the writings of Plato and Aristotle, he suggests that the Greek “myths” were, in fact, very much a reality, that the Greek “gods” were actually extraterrestrial beings who arrived on Earth many thousands of years ago.
Many of you may find von Däniken’s conclusions astounding, but they are argued with such vigor and clarity that you’ll be forced to consider the implications of his findings for mankind.
Odyssey of the Gods includes new, eye-opening information about:
• A revolutionary interpretation of the sites and legends of ancient Greece
• The conflict between “alien” gods and humans
• The true origin of centaurs, the Cyclops, and other “mythical” creatures
• A startling new explanation of the Atlantis legend
Erich von Däniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and most well-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. It was a worldwide bestseller and has been followed by 31 more books, including the recent best-sellers Twilight of the Gods and History Is Wrong (both published by New Page Books). His works have been translated into 28 languages and have sold more than 63 million copies. Several have also been made into films. Erich’s ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of TV series, including the History Channel’s hit Ancient Aliens. Erich lives in Switzerland but is an ever-present figure on the international lecture circuit.
