Rise of the Indian Rope Trick: How a Spectacular Hoax Became History
Peter Lamont (au)
A fascinating & authoritative investigation into the world’s greatest mystery. It has been consistently voted one of the world’s top ten tricks. For years it has been thought of as an ancient piece of authentic Indian magic. But the thing about the Indian rope trick is that it isn’t Indian, it doesn’t involve a rope, & it isn’t a trick. In this remarkable & acclaimed book, Peter Lamont traces the roots of a spectacular hoax to reveal just how it became the world’s most famous mystery. Lamont’s historical detective work shows that the truth here is more bizarre than even the most outlandish fiction. A riveting yarn, full of quirky stories & wisdom about our need for mystery. “The truth here is more bizarre than even the most outlandish fiction.” Illustrations.
