His works have influenced the minds of millions and reoriented our thinking upon the origin of human civilization. But who is the man beyond the myths and legends? Erich von Däniken introduces us to the man he was, before he wrote his seminal work, Chariots of the Gods.

It is his ongoing drive to change the spirit of the times and the way we think about the world we live in that will continue to affect future generations.
