Echoes of Ararat
More than 300 Flood traditions from all over North and South America are included, organized by regions beginning in Canada and proceeding southward.
In Echoes of Ararat, author Nick Liguori contends that oral traditions of the Flood—and the survival of the few inside the floating Ark—are even more prevalent than previously thought, and they powerfully confirm the truth of the Genesis account. This unprecedented work carefully documents hundreds of native traditions of the Flood—as well as the Tower of Babel and the Garden of Eden—from the tribes of North and South America. Learn what the Cherokee, Lakota, Iroquois, Cheyenne, Inuit, Inca, Aztec, Guaraní, and countless other tribes claimed about the early history of the world. Liguori also shares many evidences for the historical reliability of Genesis, and shows that the Genesis Flood account is not dependent on the Epic of Gilgamesh or other Near-Eastern texts, as skeptics claim. Rather, its author Moses had access to ancient records passed down by the early Patriarchs, including Joseph, Jacob, Abraham, and even Noah himself.
