I am happy to announce the publication today of my new book, The Mound Builder Myth: Fake History and the Hunt for a “Lost White Race.” This book has been a long time in coming. I started writing it in the winter of 2011/2012, and it has been a slow road to publication, but one I think is worth the wait. Clocking in at 400 pages, The Mound Builder Myth is the best book I have ever written, and you know that it must be good because both Graham Hancock and Ken Feder have read it in manuscript and had great things to say about it. You can order the book directly from the publisher or from your favorite retailer.
You can download the official press release for the book’s launch below in PDF format. The text and order links are below.
Say you found that a few dozen people, operating at the highest levels of society, conspired to create a false ancient history of the American continent to promote a religious, white-supremacist agenda in service of supposedly patriotic ideals. Would you call it fake news? In nineteenth-century America, this was in fact a powerful truth that shaped Manifest Destiny. The Mound Builder Myth is the first book to chronicle the attempt to recast the Native American burial mounds as the work of a lost white race of “true” native Americans.
