I am sorry to report that impact researcher, and friend to many on the internet, E.P. Grondine, has fallen on hard times. E.P. has had two calamities, a horrible stroke — and a career as a newspaper science writer. Which is not a popular vocation at the moment. If that’s not bad enough, his car “Betsy” has broken down and he is unable to repair it.
What E.P. can do is sell his book. And a great book it is. In Man and Impact in the Americas, E.P. unpacks the tales of the Native Americans in the context of atmospheric bombardment. His book is to America what Mike Baillie’s books are to Ireland and Wales and Arthurian Britain.
E.P. takes the old stories seriously. Tales and translations are disected, with “lightning” that ends the world, and “eagles” and “snakes” that bring on waves, understood for what they are. Not the campfire prattle of a stoned Indians, but the retelling of literal events recorded remarkably well by very smart people.
Here is an Amazon review with which I heartily agree:
This book is the first to examine the mythologies and migrations among Native American peoples in the light of our growing knowledge of comet and asteroid impacts. Grondine combines his knowledge of astronomical events gained from his work as a space reporter with anthropological and archaeological research into the history of the First Peoples in America in a feat of phenomenal scholarship that will open your mind to a whole new way of looking at these cultures. I learned something new on every page. His rendering of David Cusick’s 1825 ‘Sketches of the Ancient History of the Six Nations’ into modern English is alone worth the price of the book. In addition he writes in a straightforward, no BS way that was a pleasure to read. Highly recommended. — D.N.Washburn on Amazon.com
So, E.P. is offering this Tusk Only Special: Personally signed copies of his book “Man and Impact in the Americas” directly from him for the low price of $35 US plus $5 US for shipping in the US, or $15 for shipping overseas.
