Men of Renown

There were giants on the earth in those days...These ancient giants, many of whom stood between ten and twelve feet in height, were kings and rulers, shamans and mighty warriors. They occupied the upper echelon of ancient societies and were members of an elite bloodline carefully preserved for millennia. They were the gods and demigods of the ancient mythologies.

In the first part of the book, worldwide myths and legends of giants are explored in depth. Nearly every culture from the Americas to the far-flung corners of the globe tell of people of enormous stature. The stories cannot all be wrong. Also discussed are various religious texts such as the Bible which famously declared "there were giants in those days"; the Book of Enoch that chronicles the disastrous result of the Watchers taking human wives; the Kebra Nagast and the Book of Giants expand on both the Biblical and Enochian accounts; the Book of Moses sheds light on the topic from a Mormon perspective; the sacred book of the Maya, the Popol Vuh and several other religious texts are covered as well.

In the second part, historical encounters with large-statured warriors and chiefs are discussed in detail. Many European explorers came face to face with exceedingly tall people in the Americas and the islands of the South Pacific. Were these enormous people the remnant of an ancient race of giants?
The final part of the book brings everything together in an attempt to figure out what it all means. Why is a global building culture attributed to ancient giants? How does the ancient astronaut theory fit into the myths and legends? And why is there a startling lack of physical evidence to help prove that giants once walked the earth? Denver Michaels leaves no stone unturned in the quest to understand who these mighty men of renown were and what it means for us today.
