Question by jt: I need help with a book I read this summer…?
I read anywhere between 15 and 20 books this summer, mostly in July. They were all in the same category, or close, and I can’t remember the titles and authors of them all, but I can remember basically what every book was about. I don’t read fiction because I dont have time for anything else but what I WANT to know about and I dont get very much time to myself. One book in particular stands out, as it had an interesting twist on ancient history.. the origin of man, astronomy, and ‘hidden history’, which I love reading about. The problem is, I can’t remember the title OR the author, all I can remember is that it was something like ‘Hidden History’ (not by Cremo), and it has a sequel. I have looked on google and amazon to find ‘hidden history 2′ and ‘hidden history’ but none of the books it came up with was the one I was searching for. I would really like to buy this sequel, but with 3 small children, I can’t spend all day (or night, either) searching for this book.
Basically, the book was about this man’s search for the meaning of his life-long research into hidden history, the giza pyramids, ALL of the major pyramids from around the world, and how the layout of each one he researched were all star maps. He went on to tie in the oldest cave paintings known to man, and how the pyramid hieroglyphics all had this one symbol, resembling a cow’s leg, and how it’s actually a constellation. The constellation is the seven sisters, which the giza pyramids (orion’s belt) point to. From the seven sisters, there is a direction indicated that points to some mystery star where our species originated from. To blow your mind, if I remember correctly, we were intergalactic. The author implies that our species lived somewhere in orion’s belt, before that, somewhere in the seven sisters. Before THAT, the mystery star (well, a planet). And THAT is where we supposedly originated from millions of years ago. There was much more that he hinted about all throughout the book, which he reveals in the 2nd book. You could say I’m intrigued to see how it all pans out, because I love astronomy, ancient egypt, peru, and ancient mysteries, reincarnation, life after death, ufo’s (LoL, I know, I know!)… Even the crazy stories are fun for me. Everything he talked about in his book, and referenced, I had already read about, so none of it was over my head in the least. I even read about different religions and where and how they came about. I am on my own quest and I just really was interested in how he spun it ALLLLLLL together. If ANYONE can help me locate this book, I would greatly appreciate it. These type of books truly are equivalent TO ME to today’s reality shows and trashy romance novels that some of us can’t seem to get enough of. I really hate to ask someone, but I just DON’T have the time to track it down, or get to the library.. And I moved to a new state 900 miles from where I was living this past summer, so I can’t get to the library I was borrowing from… I hope I find this book, I have my fingers crossed = ) (in my mind)

Would suggest you write or email the reference librarian at your former library, and give some of your information; she/he would probably be able to trace the volume for you.
“The Dying God: The Hidden History of Western Civilization,” David Livingstone, is the only book beside Michael Cremo’s that comes to light.
Would note, in case you haven’t already read, these volumes:
“The Path of the Higher Self,” Mark Prophet,
“Man, Master of His Destiny,” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov,
“Galaxy Gate,” Colton and Murro,
“The Day after Roswell,” Col. Philip Corso,
