Over a 200-year period thousands of newspaper reports, town and county histories, letters, photos, diaries, and scientific journals have documented the existence of an ancient race of giants in North America. Extremely tall skeletons ranging from 7 feet up to a staggering 18 feet tall have been uncovered in prehistoric mounds, burial chambers, caves, geometric earthworks, and ancient battlefields.
Strange anatomic anomalies such as double rows of teeth, horned skulls, massive jaws that fit over a modern face, and elongated skulls have also been reported. Many of these discoveries were sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., seemingly never to be heard about again. The Smithsonian's own records describe at least 17 giant skeletons in annual reports. This book examines a possible cover-up initiated by Smithsonian scientists starting in the late 1800s.
The origins of “the tall ones” has been shrouded in mystery for centuries, but this book reveals where they came from, why they got so large, and the reason for their downfall, using the latest scientific research, genetic data, native myths, news reports, and ethnological research. This has become one of the most gripping stories of the last few centuries and for the first time the truth of the giants of North America has been revealed.
This book will also show you:
- How early explorers to America witnessed these giants first-hand, including Sir Francis Drake, John Smith and even some of the early presidents.
- Legends and myths that talk of cannibalistic, red-haired giants.
- Strange inscriptions, metal armor, mummified remains, and sophisticated technologies buried with the skeletons.
- How secret societies such as the Rosicrucians, Freemasons and Theosophists all claim the existence of giant humans in the past as historical fact in their literature.
- How the giants may be connected to the Denisovans from Siberia, the Nephilim of Bible tradition, and other ancient cultures.

"Jim Vieira and Hugh Newman have thoughtfully assembled a truly worthwhile collection of accounts herein. Take it for your library, and you'll return to it again and again over the years." - Ross Hamilton, author of The Mystery of the Serpent Mound, A Tradition of Giants, and Star Mounds: Legacy of a Native American Mystery "Essential book on the existence of giant skeletons and giant races in the Americas. It catalogues, chronicles and records original accounts and assesses their authenticity and reality, with a great summary of all the evidence to date. A perfect addition to the ancient mysteries bookshelf." - Andrew Collins, author of Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods, From the Ashes of Angels, and The Cygnus Mystery "Jim and Hugh have put together what is by far the best compilation of everything that is known about the reports of 'giant' skeletons recovered in America from the 1700s to the late 1900s. They included a thoughtful summary of the influence of hoaxed reports and exaggerations that have clouded our modern view of these anomalous finds and what is left is a mystery. Giants on Record is a well organized, logical, and thoroughly researched book." - Dr. Greg Little, author of Path of Souls: The Native American Death Journey, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Native American Mounds & Earthworks, and Mound Builders: Edgar Cayce's Forgotten Record of Ancient America "The avalanche of evidence unearthed by the authors leaves the reader with no option but to agree with them. This is essential reading for anyone interested in history, archaeology, or ancient sites." - Geoff Stray, author of Beyond 2012: Catastrophe or Awakening and The Mayan and Other Ancient Calendars.
