I am impressed with the quality of the book. I was thinking it would be a old book, alas it was almost new.

Great praise is due for this work. 23 Aug. 1998
By Roderick L. Schmidt( - Published on
Format: Paperback
I worked with the author of Saga America because I lived nearby one on the sites he discussed, the source for the INYO ZODIAC. Originally, I was quite skeptical, but became convinced that Fell was correct. Besides the recognition of the Zodiac, Fell also found a notation that seemed to refer to the Vernal Equinox. That led to the discovery of the functions of a complete solar observatory. This book is a true landmark in epigraphic research. The good Professor Fell is no longer with us, but this book will help his memory last forever.

Fell's work is perhaps the most important in this field 15 Dec. 1997
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
Barry Fell's 3 books on European and Mediterreanian peoples exploration/colonization of North America are the best and most important work on this subject I've ever seen. I am trying to find copies of Saga America and Bronze Age America, having purchased America B.C. a few years back. It isn't politically correct writing that he did, but it was all true.

This is A Must Read 18 Mar. 2002
By Gary Tittle - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am sad to see that most of Barry Fell's work is either out of print or going out of print. If you think you have American pre-history "wired", you better think again. This is not pseudo-history; it is the work of a chair of University history department and it is based on well-founded research and documentation. Forget the "Siberian Ice Bridge" and other things that are the distant past and consider the evidence for Libyan sailors on the Mississippi River - and Hebraic script transcriptions in a "prehistoric" cave in Los Lunas, New Mexico - I could just go on and on.... in short - get this before it cannot be had anymore. I am just amazed that such things go out of print....

A Classic on Ancient America 10 Mar. 2011
By OtherWorlds&Wisdom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Saga America is volume 2 of the groundbreaking series by Barry Fell that introduced thousands to possible pre-columbus voyages to America. People opposed to that idea often sling mud at Fell, but he is no fringe writer. He was a respected scholar who earned the support of many other scholars (his critics fail to mention this). As Fell points out, many blantly ignored accounts and artifacts of Vikings right up until ruins were found in Canada. Afterwards, they still clung to "no one before Columbus except a few wayward Vikings." Decades later, the opposition to Fell and others like him is not as great as people see the pre-1492 Americas as an ancient and sophisticated world. Sure, some of the book is dated, but this is still a classic in the field. Maybe not every one of his translations is perfect, but what about the rest? Hopefully someone will reprint Fell's books. See also Vikings in America, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, 1421: The Year China Discovered America,America B.C.: Ancient Settlers in the New World, The Island of Seven Cities: Where the Chinese Settled When They Discovered America & Columbus Was Last: From 200,000 BC to 1492, A Heretical History of Who Was First.

So happy to find this book again!!! 7 Jan. 2014
By Dave West - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I remember this book in my father's library growing up. It was neat to read it again, this time as an adult who has been able to read more, and visit places rich in the early history of our land. So much in our history has been ignored and buried in the science/archaeology field. It is so good to find those who aren't afraid to acknowledge, and study what is speaking to us from the past. There is so much to learn! A fascinating book! I am so glad to have it a part of our library now!!!
