New Book Unearths a Lost Civilization

Posted on February 25, 2013 by Bobby Bernshausen | 0 Comments

A team of archaeologists are called upon to unearth a lost civilization on the southern Arabian peninsula in the new book Eyes of the Sage, by Peter J. Ochs II.   An MIT astrophysicist is contacted to continue the investigation of a lost civilization after the unfortunate and untimely death of the expedition’s lead archeologist. Just why an astronomer is called upon a situation where he is evidently “a fish out of water” is not exactly clear, but his involvement is not accidental and his role becomes pivotal.   The ancient civilization, led by an enigmatic leader who makes a habit of disappearing and reappearing throughout history at will, was believed to have settled over 3000 years ago. As sites are revealed and artifacts are recovered, the astronomer is drawn into a complex scenario where his very actions will trigger the story’s climatic events and reveal the identity of the settlement’s mentor.   Peter J. Ochs II went to the Sultanate of Oman in 1991 to work in the Ministry of Water Resources. After two years, after collecting research about this small Arabian country, he decided to publicize Oman through writing, photography, and artwork. In 1998, Ochs lived in Oman, working in inbound tourism, but returned to America shortly after 9/11, where he currently acts as a tour guide in Yellowstone National Park.   Eyes of the Sage is available in softcover (ISBN 978-1-62137-210-3) at,, and The books can also be ordered from most bookstores around the United States and United Kingdom.
