There are places that turn up in literature or in film - mystical and legendary places - whose names may be familiar but about which we know little. We nod knowingly at the reference, but are often left wondering about places such as Atlantis, the lost land overwhelmed by the sea or El Dorado, the fabulous city that vanished somewhere inthe South American jungles. Other names are more evocative Mount Olympus, the Garden of Eden, the mystic Isle of Avalon and Davy Jones' Locker. But did such places actually exist and if so, where were they, and what really happened? What are the traditions and legends associated with them? In the fascinating new book, LOST LANDS, FORGOTTEN REALMS, historian, Dr. Bob Curran, sets out to find the answers by journeying to the far-flung corners of the world and to the outer reaches of human imagination. Inside you will:Climb the high mountains in search of the mythical Shangri-LaNavigate the deep swamps and jungles in a quest for the Seven Cities of CibolaTravel to the depths of the dark oceans to look for sunken lands such as Lemuria and LyonesseExperience unspeakable danger in a realm rarely visited by men - the subterranean lair of JudacullaDiscover the secrets of Heliopolis, Yggradsil, Hy Brasail, the Kingdom of Prester John, Llyobia and the Hollow Hills.
