Von Däniken's continuing search for traces of ancient astronauts takes him to the South Pacific's Kiribati Islands, where he examines giant footprints and monoliths as still further evidence of intergalactic visitations…. Whether considered as a piece of radical reinterpretation of world history or as a bit of unconvincing comparative hucksterism, von Däniken's [Pathways to the Gods] still reads like a daring and exotic adventure story.
