MEET ME IN ATLANTIS: My Obsessive Quest to Find the Sunken City - Book
By Mark Adams
Adams learned there is an entire global subculture of amateur explorers who are still actively and obsessively searching for this sunken city, based entirely on Plato's detailed clues. What Adams didnt realize was that Atlantis is kind of like a virus--and hed been exposed. Adams racked up frequent-flier miles tracking down these Atlantis obsessives, trying to determine why they believe it's possible to find the world's most famous lost city--and whether any of their theories could prove or disprove its existence.
The result is a classic quest that takes readers to fascinating locations to meet irresistible characters; and a deep, often humorous look at the human longing to rediscover a lost world.
