Thomas O. Mills befriended author Frank Waters, who in 1963 had written The Book of the Hopi with his Hopi informant Oswald White Bear Fredericks. Their book included the Hopi Creation Story. Mills listened, read and began to draw his own original and provocative conclusions. In his book, he seeks to track actual events and history that may be buried within it and how this could relate to our future.
This book, drawing together a variety of ideas that are usually considered separately, makes stimulating reading and is good material for classroom discussions on history, race, Hopi culture, astronomy and “myth.” Mills’s intuitive vision should spur scientists to look more closely into what we like to call “myths” or “stories” for their possible basis in historical fact. And today, as we worry about climate change and what it means for the future, shouldn’t we also be figuring out whether modern technology can prevent the earth’s...

Thomas O. Mills writes in "The Book of Truth: A New Perspective on the Hopi Creation Story" (lulu.com, 116 pages, $19.95) and "Stonehenge If This Was East" (lulu.com, 44 pages, $14.95) that balancing the planet Earth was as vital as balancing the tires on your car or truck. Pyramids clustered along the 15th and 30th north parallels of latitude? Think about the balancing weights on your wheels to make the vehicle run true and smooth. In the two companion books, Mills, a retired railroader who lives in coastal central California, says that the Hopi Indian creation story explains many things that he believes are actual and can be proven, and therefore true. Mills explains: "The story starts out by saying that the Creator was looking for a place to create as he traveled through space and he found Earth. The only problem was, the planet was out of balance. The Creator instructed a Female companion and his Nephew to correct this problem. This suggests to me that the...

I found this book while researching for a screenplay I am working on. In my reading on the Hopi Native Americans and the ancient Egyptians I noticed strange similarities between the two cultures. Given the accepted model of history today, these links are considered coincidences at best. I thought I was going crazy, until I came across this book. Thomas O. Mills has gone to painstaking lengths to write this book and it shows. He draws more parallels between the Hopi’s and Egyptians than I ever thought possible and includes startling revelations about Stonehenge, the pyramids, 2012, and the polar ice caps. It’s a must read for any truth seeker out there, especially those who are interested in the Hopi’s and their belief system.
