Praise For The Mystery of the Serpent Mound

“An extraordinary book! Ross Hamilton’s discoveries and revelations in Mystery of the Serpent Mound kick open the door to an amazing reevaluation of what we call the “New World.” Excellent reading!”
—Jeff Rense, popular talk show host of “The Jeff Rense Show” on national radio and the internet

“The earthen enigma that is Ohio’s Great Serpent Mound provokes our curiosity and challenges our imagination, as is the case with mysterious ancient monuments everywhere. In this book, Ross Hamilton takes full advantage of that provocation, and with sincerity and care explores possible interpretations of the monument. In the process, he collects together what is probably the single-source assembly of information on it—what is actually known about it together with what its meaning might be. The archeoastronomical aspects are particularly noteworthy."
—Paul Devereux, lecturer, author of The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ancient Earth Mysteries and Places of Power
