Portal in the Sky
Join archaeologist John Patton Jr. in a decades spanning journey as he searches for clues behind the enigmatic prehistoric cultures of North America. From the nomadic "Paleo-Indians" of the American Southwest, to the Mississippian metropolises of Cahokia and Moundville, Patton's search carries him across a continent, fueled by discoveries of pre-Columbian artifacts and their striking correlations to the stars above.
Told through a series of character-driven, dramatic vignettes, John Patton Jr.'s journey becomes our own, as through his perspective, we learn the Native American concepts of the Overworld & Underworld, the Horned Serpent myth, and the great, sky bound "Eye in the Hand"-- or portal in the sky-- that today is seen as the constellation Orion.
Explore the secrets of these once great cultures-- of which many remain unsolved-- and discover a hidden part of American history that is far too often overlooked.
