The Secret History of the World by Mark Booth, from Overlook Press, is part of the collection at the Reading Room. In this groundbreaking and now famous work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling tour of our world’s secret histories.
The Hermetic Library Reading Room is an imaginary and speculative future reification of the library in the physical world, a place to experience a cabinet of curiosities offering a confabulation of curation, context and community that engages, archives and encourages a living Western Esoteric Tradition.

At an undisclosed location in central Oregon, landlocked by private land, there are 800 acres of terra firma that can tell the history of the world. Thanks to the right mixture of a good fossil record and layer upon layer of ancient volcanic ash, Logan Butte has about 40 million years of continuous history, which is enough to make this Oregon parcel very well known among the global paleontology community.
Logan Butte is an Area of Critical Environmental Concern for the Bureau of Land Management, meaning it deserves and requires special protection. In addition to Zancanella, who helped manage the butte for 24 years, the following is a discussion with two additional scientists, in their own words, on the value of studying Logan Butte.
Josh Samuels (curator, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument): We can see how the life changed, how the plants and animals changed, what went extinct, what survived, what adapted. Samuels: Most the fossils we have in Oregon, we can tell people how old they are by about a million years.

Samuels: The only other place in the world where you can really do it is in Pakistan - and Pakistan is not really an easy place to go and study fossils. Hopkins: We did, in fact, find the pocket mouse, which is a new species, on Josh's first trip there. Samuels: Our job is to go find them, bring them back to the museum, preserve them so future generations, everybody can see them, they can enjoy them, they can learn from them. Samuels: We want to tell the public about the importance of these places but we also want to protect them.
Zancanella: You can't just hike in there either, because you'll be trespassing on private land.
Samuels: Not all of the important fossils sites are located within the (John Day Fossil Beds National Monument) - majority are outside on public-private land.
Samuels: This place is really of national and global significance It's the most significant site on BLM land in Oregon. And continue your trip to the past with a visit to the BLM's archaeological and historic homepage! But what if history—or what we come to know as history—has been written by the wrong people? If you would like to contribute to the Hermetic Library Reading Room, consider supporting the library or contact the librarian. Starting from the premise that everything we've been taught about our world's past is corrupted, this revolutionary rethinking of our story presents an alternate timeline ofthe past 3,000 years.
From daring escapes to the background behind Hitler's rise to power, this set offers a comprehensive examination of the global conflict.

Really for North America, it is the best place to study how things changed in one place over time.
Plants, animals, climatic change, moving of the continent - you can only find that in one other place in the world - it's like between India and Pakistan.
The Oligocene Epoch, from approximately 34 million to 23 million years ago, is known for a period of time that transitioned from the tropical to more modern ecosystems. The Paleontological Resources Preservation Act of 2009 means business; basically, if the fossil has vertebrae, don't take it from public lands. This made the New York Times Bestseller list, so as a sort of widely exposed, soft introduction for the novice, this might, maybe, be a book that could spark some conversations, and lead the reader to more serious material.
Charge through time and space and look again at history as you thought you knew it, from Christian cults to Freemasons, from Charlemagne to Hitler.
This is from the same publisher behind The Book of English Magic, which I reviewed a while ago, and it occurs to me the latter could follow the former in a series for the YA or non-academic reader interested in such things. If you’re expecting typical history you’ll be frustrated.  But if you’re looking for a myth to show you how we got where we are and where we’re headed, give it a try.Stay in touch!
