The Antarctic ice mass should be three miles thick by May 5, 2000the date when all the planets will be arrayed in a straight line and some kind of cataclysmic shift of ice to the equator is possible, according to Noone. Postulating that a similar disastrous shift occurred thousands of years ago, the author seeks historical proof, mainly in the mysteries of the Great Pyramid, along with Freemasonry, ancient maps, astronomical temples, the Illuminati and the Knights Templar. Interspersed are several Q & A interviews, whose subjects include Egyptologist Edward Wente, Peter Tompkins (Secrets of the Great Pyramid, G. Patrick Flanagan (Pyramid Power and Tom Valentine (The Great Pyramid. Many of the 200 illustrations (maps, charts, photographs, religious art, Dore engravings) present an intriguing, enigmatic portrait of ancient civilizations. Even skeptical readers will find this an extraordinary compendium of forgotten lore and lost knowledge. (May)
