Paradise Found: The Cradle of the Human Race at the North Pole is a book by William Fairfield Warren, first published in 1885. In this book, Warren puts forth his belief that Atlantis, the Garden of Eden, Avalon, and a couple of other mythical lands were all once situated at the North Pole, noting that Homer, Vigil, and Hesiod all placed Atlas at the 'ends of the earth'. If the science of all this has now been corrected (with the discovery of plate tectonics, and the filling in of the polar maps), the books also contains reviews of the folklore of the subjects like the tree of life, the world mountain, and of course, Eden.
Chapters include: Ancient Cosmology and Mythical Geography; The Cradle of the Race in Ancient Japanese Thought; The Cradle of the Race in Chinese Thought; The Cradle of the Race in East Aryan or Hindu Thought; The Cradle of the Race in Iranian, or Old-Persian, Thought; The Cradle of the Race in Ancient Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian Thought; The Cradle of the Race in Ancient Egyptian Thought; The Cradle of the Race in Ancient Greek Thought, and many more.
This book has 261 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1885.
