Summary
  • According to the Greek philosopher Plato, the ancient city and lost continent of Atlantis was devastated by floods and earthquakes in about 9600 B.C. Fascinated with Atlantis, Plato wrote at length of the city's magnificence and described its geographical location in great detail, giving rise over the centuries to countless theories regarding Atlantis's precise location
  • J.M. Allen, a former cartographic draftsman and aerial intelligence interpreter for the Royal Air Force, has made an amazing discovery that may solve the fabled mystery. He has located a site in what is now modern Bolivia, on the Altiplano, where he has found the remains of a canal system that parallels the one described by Plato almost 2500 years ago. Plato's description of an island city on a plain encircled by mountains matches the Altiplano exactly. Furthermore, Atlantis was set on a lake - the present day Lake Poopo - and plated in gold, silver, bronze, tin, and a rare metal called "orichalcum." These metals are found together in abundance only in Bolivia
  • Atlantis: The Andes Solution fully explains J.M. Allen's theories as well as the other lines of conjecture that his tremendous finding has opened up. It concludes with an account of the author's trip to Bolivia, where he found physical evidence of the legendary city
