Book Review: Mysterious Stone Sites by Linda Zimmermann

Mysterious Stone Sites

There are mysteries in the woods of the Hudson Valley of New York and northern New Jersey. There are stone sites that are assumed to be the work of colonial farmers, but author and researcher Linda Zimmermann has found compelling evidence that disputes this misconception. Zimmermann explores stone chambers, perched boulders, standing stones, and massive walls that may just be unique historical treasures that must be studied and preserved. Could they be the work of Native Americans or Pre-Columbian voyagers?

 

Editorial Review

Ancient American magazine, Issue #111:

Our continent’s megalithic sites have been featured in the pages of Ancient American for more than twenty years. But Mysterious Stone Sites is the first a book of its kind to concentrate on the rich field of dolmen’s, chambers,cairns, balanced rocks, pillars, walls, drilled holes, arranged circles,inscriptions, maps, astronomical alignments, and monoliths in the Hudson Valley and New Jersey.

That’s a lot to fit between the 177 pages of Mysterious Stone Sites, but author Linda Zimmermann has done a splendid job of it, not short-changing readers with insufficient information, but, on the contrary, providing them with succinct descriptions and credible assessments that cut to the chase. Her clear brevity is illustrated by 155 photographs and line drawings of megalithic places that prove, by their sheer numbers, that our Eastern Seaboard became home for Neolithic seafarers from Western Europe during Neolithic times.

What makes Zimmermann’s new book especially intriguing to investigators already acquainted with the subject are the many otherwise unknown locations she describes with precision and insight. For other readers unfamiliar with the profusion of very ancient monuments populating North America, Mysterious Stone Sites serves as an engaging introduction to these impressive structures.

Find out why All I Need Is You has been called
“…a delightfully witty, funny, and sexy romance that melts your heart
and makes you believe in happily ever after again.”

As a dancer who creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After corresponding for months as part of a “Support Our Troops” initiative—and exchanging dozens of “Read When You’re Alone” letters—Neve knows what Rory likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few blissful moments together before they’re interrupted by a woman claiming to be Rory’s fiancée.

Rory has fallen hard for Neve’s letters. When he finally meets her in person, he has to have her, right then and there—until Neve takes off in a fit of anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them, Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he’s not the man Neve thinks he is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she’s already made up her mind. Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he’s prepared to put everything on the line for love.

Book Promo: Final Sin by Chelle Cordero

FS trio

Deputy Sheriff Commander Jake Carson has his hands full… investigation of a brutal multiple homicide, a troubled son and a vindictive ex-wife. He meets young, free-spirited paramedic Julie Jennings. When Julie becomes the subject of an obsession, it puts both of them in danger…

For Matt and Julie, their tour of duty had started out like many others. There had been a call to a minor motor vehicle accident, another for chest pains and one more for a cancer patient who needed to go to the hospital for treatment. Many of the upstate New York communities had contracted with Paramedic services to complement the existing ambulance corps and provide emergency medical response. Whether paid or unpaid, the certified corps always responded with Emergency Medical Technicians who were capable of handling most emergencies. When the Paramedics were dispatched as well, IV drugs and additional hands could often help make critical differences when necessary.

This call had gone out over the radio for a burn victim, so none of the responding police, fire fighters, volunteer ambulance crew nor paramedics were prepared for what they found when they reached this isolated tool shed. From the outside, the grayed wood had seemed serene enough, and the one small window had been caked over with dirt. She didn’t think that she would have given the shed a second glance under normal circumstances. But this was far from normal. No one had anticipated the horror scene inside.
