In “Ancient Amerindian Symbols with Old World Connections” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Jim Michael’s latest historical book, readers follow Michael as he takes them around America to find ancient symbols and their history. His book will be featured at the 2014 New York Library Association, a yearly book fair that draws in thousands of attendants each year.
As readers progress through this collection of ancient lore and symbols, Michael points out that many of the symbols seen around America have been here long before Columbus graced the eastern shores. He hopes that this book will help readers gain some understanding of the world around them and see that there is more to learn than what the history books claim to tell them.
An excerpt from “Ancient Amerindian Symbols with Old World Connections”:
“In France, the Coelbren alphabet is called Iberian and Rafinesque might have seen it but this was not his area of expertise. He did recognize that there was an alphabet and that there were inscriptions here in Kentucky which he reported in his 1824 book. It may have looked a bit different to him because the writing on stone walls has much straighter strokes and the writing on metal and small tablets is more precise.”
