Years ago I picked up a strange book in the library. It was published around 1900, and was written by a 12-year old girl who claimed to have vivid recollections of a past lifetime in Atlantis, just before it submerged. React to that as you will, but she wrote about it and they published it. As I recall from the Foreward, she couldn't remember a thing about Atlantis after writing the book. Remember, the book was written in 1900, or thereabouts, and was ancient when I read it, almost falling apart. This little girl described solar energy, which she said the entire continent ran on, planes, and all kinds of electrical devices that wouldn't be invented for another 50 years. She also said there was a procedure that extended lifespans to 200 years. The procedure was usually only performed on the rich and powerful as a reward, but just about everyone who had the procedure regretted it. She had other things to say about the country's politics and relations with other parts of the world (which didn't particularly interest Atlanteans because the rest of the world was so barbaric, she said). (I'm just writing about what I remember in case one detail jogs someone else's memory.) I can't recall if she wrote it as a story, or as a weird memoir. It read like sci-fi, but was fascinating because of the author and the time it was published, and some of the amazing technology she predicted. It falls under "fun read." When I went back to find it, it was gone. Sold, no doubt, at the library's annual book sale one year. Nevertheless, I always wanted to go back and look at it, just to see if the book was really real (it seems like such a stretch, doesn't it?). And, of course, I have no idea what the title was or the name of the author.
