The Mysterious World
An Atlas of the Unexplained

In many scientific disciplines, the more that is discovered, the farther the horizon of knowledge seems to recede. In others, the underlying assumptions have become so shaky that they will soon be discarded and replaced. All contain mysterious and uncomfortable facts which cannot be explained by conventional reasoning and which tend to be pushed aside as someone else's problem… Almost by definition, a mystery is an awkward fact or event that cannot be explained in an orthodox way.

Since the beginning of civilization, man has been puzzled by the innumerable enigmas of our universe - the origin of the world, the development of life on earth, the accomplishments of ancient civilizations, and the powers of seemingly incomprehensible geographic and solar phenomena. The human imagination has always been haunted by supernatural myths, legends and beliefs. Some have been resolved by time, others remain forever unexplainable.

The Mysterious World is a lavishly illustrated encyclopedia of the unaccountable. Relying on factual knowledge, scientific analysis, and unorthodox thoughts, as well as splendid photographs, drawings, charts, and maps, the author examines eighty of the most perplexing mysteries of all time, including:

  • Spontaneous human combustion
  • The building of the pyramids
  • The great deluge and Noah's ark
  • UFOs
  • The Bermuda Triangle
  • King Solomon's mines
  • Animal showers from the sky
  • Shangri-La

And this is only a small sampling of the information covered in this book, a unique reference tool and a real find for anyone curious about - and who is not? - the unsolved mysteries of our universe.

Francis Hitching is a member of the Royal Archeological Institute, the Prehistoric Society, and the Society for Physical Research. A former newspaper reporter and magazine journalist, Hitching has also appeared on television in both Britain and the United States, speaking on alternative theories of archeology and psychic phenomena. Author of Earth Magic, which discusses the origins of megaliths, Hitching lives near London with his wife and three daughters.
