The unfolding story of the esoteric traditions in the Western hemisphere is revealed, beginning with the rites and mysteries of the Maya and Aztecs. Parallels are drawn between the miracles of the North American Indian medicine priests and wonder-workers of India. Also included: an account of the Incas of Peru and their possible contact with Asia; the riddle of Columbus; the role of Francis Bacon in organizing the English settlements in America, and the contributions of the German mystics through the Pietists, Mennonites, Dunkers, and Quakers. The American Revolutionary period and important personalities of that time are examined, as are the Latin American patriots Simon Bolivar, Miguel Hidalgo, and Benito Juarez.
