After centuries of isolation the Kogi have decided that the time has come to speak. This book is their warning and message. It makes sense of that was not known or understood of the pre-Columbian civilizations and it is an attempt to make us understand the consequences of our own way of living.
Spectacular gold pieces made by a forgotten civilization, the Taironas, appeared in large numbers in Colombia in the 1970s. 16th-century chronicles spoke of their ceremonial cities and eventually tomb robbers led the way to the Lost City of the Taironas in dense mountain jungle. Alan Ereira went there and made contact with their communities still functioning high on an isolated mountain. Here an ancient priesthood still rules in cities more than a 1000 years old. They have preserved the culture and philisophy of a culture and philosophy of a culture lost everywhere else: the civilization of the Chibchas, the people of El Dorado. After centuries of deliberate isolation, these people, the Kogi, have decided that the time has come to speak to us. They call themselves "The Elder Brothers" of the human race and are convinced that our ignorance and greed will destroy the balance of life on earth in the next few years. They believe that the only hope is for us to change our ways and so they have set out to teach us what they know about the balance between mankind, nature and the spiritual world. This book is their warning and their message. It makes sense of much that was not known or understood of the pre-Columbian civilizations of America. And it is a desperate attempt to make us understand the consequences of our own way of living. The author also wrote "The People's England", "The Invergordon Mutiny" and "The Battle of the Somme".
