GEORGE: Yes I concluded they were just trying to sell the book,
which looks pretty thick and is probably pricy.
The illustrations used also remind me of JW literature,
which also postulates a Garden of Eden, past or future.
Does anyone still defend the idea of a matriarchal society in the past,
such as was set out by Robert Graves in his book The White Goddess?
Which I suspect is more poetry and fantasy than based on reality.

DAVID: I don't think so from my readings. Using the example of American natives, called Indians mistakenly, they were stone age and patriarchal, and were in North America from almost 18-20,000 years ago.

dhw: I don’t know Robert Graves’s book, and I don’t have time to do any research on this, but I’m pretty sure there were matriarchal societies in parts of Africa. And apparently there is compelling evidence that the Amazons were real, not mythical!
