Drawing on 400 years of newspaper articles and photos, first person accounts, state historical records, and illustrated field reports, Richard J. Dewhurst reveals not only that North America was once ruled by an advanced race of giants but also that the Smithsonian has been actively suppressing the physical evidence for nearly 150 years. He shows how thousands of giant skeletons have been unearthed at Mound Builder sites across the continent, only to disappear from the historical record. He examines other concealed giant discoveries, such as the giant mummies found in Spirit Cave, Nevada, wrapped in fine textiles and dating to 8000 BCE; the hundreds of red-haired bog mummies found at sinkhole "cenotes" on the west coast of Florida and dating to 7500 BCE; and the ruins of the giants' cities with populations in excess of 100,000 in Arizona, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Louisiana. Dewhurst shows how this suppression began shortly after the Civil War and transformed into an outright cover-up in 1879 when Major John Wesley Powell was appointed Smithsonian director, launching a strict pro-evolution, pro-Manifest Destiny agenda. He also reveals the 1920s' discovery on Catalina Island of a megalithic burial complex with 6,000 years of continuous burials and over 4,000 skeletons, including a succession of kings and queens, some more than 9 feet tall--the evidence for which is hidden in the restricted-access evidence rooms at the Smithsonian.… (mere)

This book is fascinating and irritating at the same time. The author has loads of reports about giant remains discovered in North America, but conveniently "forgets" that "America" also refers to South America. The book consists mainly of retyped newspaper reports about artifact discoveries, with very little analysis or joining of dots or synthesis or additional ideas or conjecture by the author. The book also only makes a passing mention of the whole "Great Smithsonian Cover-Up". Oh, and while I'm at it - more pictures of these finds would have been nice.

So, if you have never read anything about anomalous giants finds in North America, then this book will be interesting for you. If you want more specific details about giant finds in North America, then you might add this book to your library for completeness. However, there was nothing new or earth-shattering in this book for those who have already read up a bit on the the subject - in that case you may want to borrow this book first rather than buying it.

I would rate it 2.5 stars. Two things come ot mind after reading the book. The first, and least important, is that this was a collection of articles spanning the last 100 years pertaining mostly (but not always) to the discovery of giants. Most of the articles had a newspaper name and date, but left off the reporter's name. Kinda annoying. The overall lack of narrative by the author pretty much made the book a chore to read as you came closer to the end. That being said, the biggest complaint I have with the book was the total lack of evidence (or even a discussion for that matter) of the "Smithsonian Cover-up". ITS IN THE TITLE!!! I still have no idea of what, why, or how the Smithsonian covered up any of this! This is the second book from Bear and Company Publishing that had "Smithsonian Cover-Up" in the title, yet ZERO discussion pertaining to it. Ouch! ( )
