Reviews

"Jason Colavito explains how the myth of a 'lost white race' as the builders of North America's earthen mounds has survived for so long and still resonates with those Americans willing to believe in conspiracy theories or racial superiority. The Mound Builder Myth shows that the battle between science and superstition never ends."--David La Vere, author of Looting Spiro Mounds: An American King Tut's Tomb
