More than 300 Flood traditions from all over North and South America are included, organized by regions beginning in Canada and proceeding southward.

In Echoes of Ararat, author Nick Liguori contends that oral traditions of the Flood—and the survival of the few inside the floating Ark—are even more prevalent than previously thought, and they powerfully confirm the truth of the Genesis account. This unprecedented work carefully documents hundreds of native traditions of the Flood—as well as the Tower of Babel and the Garden of Eden—from the tribes of North and South America. Learn what the Cherokee, Lakota, Iroquois, Cheyenne, Inuit, Inca, Aztec, Guaraní, and countless other tribes claimed about the early history of the world. Liguori also shares many evidences for the historical reliability of Genesis, and shows that the Genesis Flood account is not dependent on the Epic of Gilgamesh or other Near-Eastern texts, as skeptics claim. Rather, its author Moses had access to ancient records passed down by the early Patriarchs, including Joseph, Jacob, Abraham, and even Noah himself.

Impressive Collection of Genesis Stories!
Review by
I really enjoyed this collection of flood legends from North and South America, beginning with an overview of the account from Genesis. There are also stories of other Genesis accounts like the Tower of Babel and the Garden of Eden included. The details of the accounts vary quite a bit, but I can’t believe there are so many stories with similarities. What surprised me most was finding flood legends from the Native Americans in my hometown, as well as in the state we live now! It seems practically every tribe has their own story!

This is an amazing resource! I approached this reading already believing in a worldwide flood, but these stories have taken my faith to a new level of astonishment at God’s mighty declaration of power!
Strong foundation book
Review by
I have long known that many native American cultures have a flood story as part of the genesis tale, but what I did NOT know, until reading this book, that there are over 300 tribes in the Americas that ALL have a similar tale! You have to ask yourself, how can 300 tribes all have a similar creation myth, when we know that myth is always based on some sort of fact/actual event, and then try to say that the great flood of the Bible didn't occur? You can't. You have to acknowledge that somewhere in our past there WAS a catalystic flood, that wiped out all the earth, and hence, the genesis stories all start with that flood. And of course if you make that obvious theory, then it follows, that other things in the bible DID occur as well. Suddenly the bible as myth theory no longer holds water (pun intended)

Ligouri does a good job in compiling the tales by geographic region, so it is easy for the reader to see the similarities by tribes close to each other. As Ligouri says, he merely compiled tales that has already been written down, many hundreds of years ago (!!0 and made them cohesive, by adding in pictures and illustrations from different tribes. This helps to make the book interesting to kids especially. This should be included in any religious education class, especially for pre-teens, before societal cues make them doubt the bible. It helps to give a strong foundation for historical fact and for apologetic teaching!
