In 1587, over 100 settlers landed in the New World to establish England's first permanent colony. Three years later, they had vanished. Investigating America's oldest missing-persons case, Josh Bernstein flies high above Roanoke Island in a powered para-glider; climbs and cores a cypress tree to study the climate conditions the settlers faced; participates in an American-Indian powwow; and learns to cook as the local 16th-century natives once did. Finally, Josh travels back to England to trace the roots of a family whose DNA suggests that at least one of the lost colonists may have survived

Giants of Easter Island ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ever since Easter Island was discovered by Europeans, this tiny speck of land in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has baffled scientists. It's only eleven miles long by seven miles wide, and it's the most remote inhabited place on the planet. How did the ancients who peopled this place even find it? Carbon dating tells us that Polynesians settled this tiny paradise in the fifth century A. D. By the 14th century, their numbers had grown to almost twenty thousand -- but then something went wrong. When Dutch voyagers found the island in 1722, the population was decimated and the island deforested and almost desertified. Josh learns how the prehistoric Polynesians navigated and colonized the Pacific and how the giant, haunting stone heads of Easter Island may have contributed to their downfall. He learns that the statues all came from a single quarry, the islanders using Stone Age methods to create nearly a thousand of them before, for tragic reasons, they simply stopped, leaving many scattered and unfinished. Around the sixteenth century, many islanders began living underground in lava tube caves. How does this change relate to the ecological degradation and the abandonment of the statues? Josh discovers that place-names indicate the fall of the society into warfare and cannibalism, and that the bizarre Cult of the Birdman, based on worship of the sooty tern, arose to bring an end to the chaos

For centuries, adventurers, and archaeologists have all searched for the Bible's most sacred lost treasure: the Ark of the Covenant. Yet, despite all its fame, it mysteriously disappeared from the pages of history tens of centuries ago. How could something so powerful and holy simply vanish? That's what host and adventurer Josh Bernstein is determined to find out when he follows a trail that starts where the Ark's story begins--on Mount Sinai. Next, he explores a secret maze beneath Jerusalem's streets and visits Deir es Sultan, an Ethiopian monastery located on the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. In Ethiopia, he climbs up a sheer cliff to reach Debre Damo, one of the country's most ancient monasteries, and travels across Lake Tana to the place where some say the Ark is kept today

She ruled the hearts of Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony and led one of the world's greatest civilizations. Though her name has been immortalized in myth and legend, Cleopatra was the last of the pharaohs. Why? In the shadow of the pyramids, Josh hunts for mummies from Cleopatra's era. He comes face to face with Cleopatra's killer--the Egyptian cobra--and sails down the Nile on the trail of her true tale. Finally, in Alexandria, clues beneath the modern city and its harbor shed light on the woman who presided over the end of an era, but might have been the greatest of all Egypt's pharaohs
Digging for the truth the real Temple of Doom ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thousands of years before the Inca, the Chavín ruled the land now known as Peru for 800 years. Unlike other New World civilizations, the Chavín did not rely on military might for their influence, relying instead on hallucinogenic plants (San Pedro cactus) to control their subjects. Josh tries to understand this mysterious culture and an enigmatic obelisk whose engravings might represent a creation myth. Why does the obelisk feature carvings of a caiman, an anaconda, yucca plants, peanuts, and chili peppers, when these appear only in the Amazon jungle, not high in the mountains? Josh ventures deep into miles of tunnels beneath the ruins of Chavín de Huantar, comes face to face with some of the most fearsome animals of the Peruvian Amazon, visits the archaeological sites of Caral Supe and Las Aldas, and investigates a real temple of doom that is 2,500 years old

Digging for the truth the Da Vinci code : bloodlines ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Josh Bernstein searches for solid evidence behind the controversial theory laid out in Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci code. Brown's theory claims that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and that she conceived a child. It also suggests that the bloodline continues unbroken to this day. Josh shows what's true and what's clearly make-believe. From musty libraries to ancient churches, Josh's unique quest leads him to seek the DNA evidence that might prove or disprove one of the most sensational claims in modern history. Most remarkably he'll orchestrate the first ever DNA test on a Merovingian royal to find out if the story of a divine bloodline stretching back to Jesus and Mary Magdalene could possibly be true."--Historychannel.com

And how did they defeat one of the world's most powerful armies? Follow Josh Bernstein as he paddles down the bayous; builds his own earthen pyramid with modern equipment; and scuba-dives the cold, dark waters of Wisconsin to solve the mystery of America's pyramid builders
