0 Book Review: Exodus Lost by S.C. Compton

Title: Exodus Lost
Author: S.C. Compton
Genre: History

Buy: Amazon | Barnes & Noble 

Book Summary: 
Aztec and Mayan chronicles told of voyagers who arrived from across the Atlantic Ocean centuries before Columbus. Remembered as founding fathers, they hailed from a remote land called Tlillan Tlapallan, "Black Land Red Land." Now, for the first time, Exodus Lost presents compelling evidence that this lost homeland was Kemet Deshret, "Black Land Red Land," the ancient Egyptian name for Egypt. From this follow a series of groundbreaking discoveries into the origins of Mexican civilization, the roots of Western civilization, the creation of the alphabet, the history of the pyramids, and even new archaeological evidence for several major Bible stories. Enter a world of exploration and discovery, mystery and revelation. Whether your passion is archaeology or religion, history or simply a great adventure, Exodus Lost delivers.

Beautifully illustrated with 126 photos, maps, and engravings.

Book Review:
This is a very well-written book with lots of interesting facts. You can tell that the author did plenty of research to complete the book. The story moves in a fast pace and has illustrations to go along with the book. The author uses archaeology, mythology, history, and science to make the connections in the story. I recommend this book to those that are interested in ancient cultures.
