Atlantis: The Autobiography of a Search (L)
Atlantis: The Autobiography of a Search  two young writers Robert Ferro and his partner Michael Grumley. Most of their output was fiction but they collaborated on this non-fiction book in the late 1960’s. Unfortunately, it does little to advance the search for Atlantis. Apparently, inspired by the writings of Edgar Cayce they descended on Bimini in 1968 and began exploring the shallow seas there and where they encountered Dr. Manson Valentine one of the discoverers of the Bimini Road. However, their lack of scientific background allows them to declare that many of the rocks there were not local but quarried in the far-off Andes. The book contains a defence of pot-smoking which is probably more interesting than their grasp of the Atlantis mystery.
Sadly, Michael Grumley died of AIDS in 1988 and Robert Ferro died similarly less than three months later.
