 Wilkins, Harold T., MYSTERIES OF ANCIENT SOUTH AMERICA, 1946, Rider (London), HB. Wilkins is one of an older group of "fringe" writers who wrote about treasure hunting, and mysterious lost cities in exotic locals. He generally supports the ideas of Col. P. H. Fawcett, that lost colonies of Atlantis would be found in the jungles of Brazil. This work contains a large body of legends and tall tales that would later show up in 60's and 70's fringe literature, especially those about "extraterrestrial genesis." Wilkins later took up the cause of UFOs, bringing his taste for ancient mysteries to a whole new field. I think these pre-UFO books by Wilkins possess a certain charm that is missing in his later works (See 1954, 1955, 1957, and 1967 entries).
