Read about how Quests of the Dragon and Bird Clan retraces mysterious ancient trade routes!
Paul Kekai Manansala has researched ancient and medieval history for
decades traveling to far corners of the world for clues about
little-known ancient maritime voyaging and oceanic trade networks. He
has collaborated and corresponded with recognized experts like Dr.
Stephen Oppenheimer, author of Eden in the East and archaeologist
Wilhelm Solheim in developing this ground-breaking study.
Manansala's book Quests of the Dragon and Bird Clan explores
the history of an ancient maritime trade thalassocracy founded by peoples
Nusantao were intrepid
seafaring people who learned to master celestial navigation in very
early times. These oceanic adventurers interacted with other peoples
the Neolithic Yayoi who the author suggests used Nusantao trade routes in migrating to Japan.
events like sea flooding and volcanoes stimulated Nusantao
exploration and migration further and further abroad. In the course of
wide-ranging travels, Manansala suggests that these sea explorers
altered history in wide-ranging areas in ways never before explored.
For example, he claims that the legendary king Prester John of the Indies was
an historical and not-so-legendary Nusantao king. Also he provides evidence
that the Holy Grail, which most
medieval texts claim came from, and returned to the Indies, was related to
Nusantao spiritual culture.
Quests of the Dragon and Bird Clan has one-of-a-kind insights that you will not find any other history book!
Long ago, beginning in the New Stone Age, a people that included the ancestors of the Malayo-Polynesian people, known as the
Nusantao, spread news of the world's center to the far reaches of the globe.
A great churning of the ocean -- a major volcanic eruption
-- had left clues convincing these
ancient navigators that they had discovered the axis mundi, the link between the three worlds of old mythology!
