This is “a thoroughly serious and sincere attempt to present what is to the author’s mind the true and final solution of one of the greatest and most fascinating of all problems connected with the history of mankind,” that is, the location of “primitive Eden.” Warren hypothesizes that its location was at the Arctic Pole. He presents an exhaustive argument using support from the sciences of prehistoric climatology, as well as paleontological botany, zoology, and anthropology. The body of the work presents support from ancient ethnic traditions from around the world regarding the “cradle of the race.” These include ancient Japanese, Chinese, Hindu, Buddhist, Navajo, Aztec, Persian, Akkadian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Egyptian, and Greek thought. This is an unusual piece of scholarship which says as much about the time in which it was written as it does about the location of paradise.
