Meet Me in Atlantis
In his follow-up to his bestseller Turn Right at Machu Picchu, Mark Adams delves into the crazy, exciting world of “Atlantology,” visiting communities of amateur scholars convinced that the lost city of Atlantis is the only destination worth seeking. Meet Me in Atlantis digs deep into Mediterranean history, analyzes ancient philosophy and tries to separate Atlantis fact from fiction. Adams explores places as diverse as Morocco, Ireland, Malta, Minnesota and the Rock of Gibraltar in his quest for the lost city. Written in clear, nonchalant prose, Adams’ travel narrative is also an experiment in historical travel.
