When I began to research the J.C. Brown mystery, I suspected that if any element of Brown’s story was true, there might be something in the historical record–or prehistoric lore of the region–that could help validate his claims.
Of all the mysteries I've explored around Mount Shasta I can't say that I've seen anything real, most of it is paranormal—I've never seen a real Lemurian, I've never seen any Lemurian artifacts, I've never seen a real UFO. But the J.C. Brown mystery is different, he might have actually found something real up here in the Crags which doesn't fit into our modern paradigm.
There's no question that Brown's tale has been embellished over the years, as all legends are, but to a certain extent the prehistoric lore of the region supports his claims.
I was as surprised as anyone to discover a great many traditions throughout California and the Pacific Northwest speaking about a fallen race of prehistoric giants, and a cataclysmic Flood which brought about their demise.
