Overview

Erich von Däniken's monumental Chariots of the Gods changed the way generations have looked at mythology, ancient history, and the possibility of advanced beings from other worlds visiting Earth. Now he tackles the history of Greece and again challenges our beliefs about how our civilization arose.

Using painstaking archaeological research and evidence from the writings of Plato and Aristotle, he suggests that the Greek "myths" were, in fact, very much a reality, that the Greek "gods" were actually extraterrestrial beings who arrived on Earth many thousands of years ago.

Many of you may find von Däniken's conclusions astounding, but they are argued with such vigor and clarity that you'll be forced to consider the implications of his findings for mankind.

Odyssey of the Gods includes new, eye-opening information about:
  • A revolutionary interpretation of the sites and legends of ancient Greece
  • The conflict between "alien" gods and humans
  • The true origin of centaurs, the Cyclops, and other "mythical" creatures
  • A startling new explanation of the Atlantis legend

His works have been translated into 28 languages and have sold more than 65 million copies. Several have also been made into films. Von Däniken's ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of television series, including the History Channel's hit Ancient Aliens.
