Atlantis: The Autobiography Of A Search


Description for ATLANTIS: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A SEARCH by Robert Ferro and Michael Grumley:

Late in 1968 two adventurous men began a voyage in a thirty-seven-foot pleasure boat, the "Tana", to the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. Pleasure was their least objective, however, for they come to Bimini in search of one of man's oldest mysteries, the "lost continent" of Atlantis. And they may have found it.

Although Robert Ferro and Michael Grumley sailed from New Jersey their journey actually began in Rome some time before. Through people they met there they became interested in the legends of Atlantis, in astrology, card reading, and psychic phenomena and heard of the famous psychic Edgar Cayce and of his prophesy that Atlantis would re-emerge in 1968 or 1969.

This is a bold adventure story of the authors' personal quests for the lost continent, how their own dreams and intuitions lead to the clear, blue waters of Bimini where they discovered unmistakable traces of an ancient civilization.

What Robert Ferro and Michael Grumley found is open to archaeological speculation and research will be conducted in the area. Perhaps Atlantis is a pot of gold, a dream, a legend, or it might indeed have been a great continent caught and lost in a gigantic cataclysm over then thousand years ago. What we do know is that the authors have discovered proof of an ancient civilization that may have been Atlantis.
