Description

"Christopher McIntosh's new book on the history, mythology and meaning of actual and supposed Hyperborean civilizations provided me with a captivating adventure, akin to setting sail in a Nordic longboat into formerly icy and uncharted territory. As the journey progressed, my mind began to un-freeze as I was opened to the author's fabulous array of scholarly lore amid a fascinating range of vital research upon topics many of us have gained only hints about in the past. This is an invigorating, important work to appear as many people seek meaningful identities within, and perhaps beyond, a modern world that is fast divorcing people from their roots and their souls. Dr McIntosh cuts through the ice with a diamond edge, revealing a lake of insight and promise of greater, more enriching vistas to come. I commend this work highly both to fellow scholars and to anyone seriously interested in the highly charged meaning of the word "Nordic", a word rightly associated with quality, nobility, and beauty, only abused by those who lack those very qualities. Dr McIntosh's genial text is consistently illuminating, easy to read and digest, scholarly but by no means dry or obscure. He wants to communicate his knowledge and interest, clearly and fairly, and succeeds wonderfully in a work representing the achievements of a lifetime of open-hearted study and valid experience." --Tobias Churton, author of The True History of the Rosicrucians, Aleister Crowley: The Biography, Jerusalem! The Real Life of William Blake; Occult Paris, and The Spiritual Meaning of the Sixties--Tobias Churton
