The Land of Mu was a huge continent situated in the Pacific Ocean between America and Asia, its centre lying somewhat south of the equator. Basing its area on the remains which are still above water, it would have been about six thousand miles from north to south. All the rocky islands, individually and in groups, scattered over the Pacific Ocean were once a part of the Continent of Mu. Cataclysmic earthquakes destroyed Mu about twelve thousand years ago.
The Pacific Ocean rushed in, making a watery grave for a vast civilization and sixty million people. Easter Island, Tahiti. Samoas, Cook, Marshall, Gilbert, Caroline, Marianas, Hawaii and the Marquesas are but the remnants of that great land, standing today as sentinels to a silent grave.
The author spent fifty years authenticating and piecing together the story of the lost civilization of Mu. In this, his second book, Churchward tells the satory of the colonial expansion of Mu and the influence of the highly developed Mu culture on the rest of the world.
