This rare book on the "Hollow Earth" theory was originally published in 1908 by Willis George Emerson, who relates the adventures of one Olaf Jansen, a Norwegian seafarer. His eloquent story of a land beyond the North pole was only one of many in its time. The author claims this is a true story of Olaf Jansen, a fisherman who sailed by accident through the North Polar opening into the Hollow Interior of the Earth, and lived 2 years among its people. Many of the modern-day "polar myth" theories can trace their origins to these incredible journeys. Jansen claimed that the northern aperture, intake or hole, so to speak, is about 1,400 miles across. He also reports that this area is inhabited by a race of tall human-looking beings who, he claims, were driven out of the Garden of Eden, and who brought their traditional history with them. Join this adventure through the northern passage to a land that time has forgotten; to a land of gold and splendor; to a land that has yet to be "officially" discovered. This deathbed recounting (as retold by a U.S. newspaper reporter) of a Norwegian sailor's adventure as he journeys with his father to the center of the earth - through an oceanic aperture at the North Pole, visits a continent there, and meets a group of highly developed people - that he surmises is the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, contains interesting perspectives on the "true" physical nature of the earth and on religious topics relating to the Lost Tribes.Emerson, Willis George is the author of 'Smoky God A Voyage to the Inner World' with ISBN 9781589638631 and ISBN 1589638638.
