As you might imagine, we get a lot of emails from fans of America Unearthed on The History Channel's H2. I keep many of these. They keep me going when the looking gets difficult.

To fans of America Unearthed, Thanks!! And keep the comments coming.
Hi Scott Wolter,
I am a big fan of your America Unearthed TV programs on H2. I don't agree with everything I see and hear, but I do enjoy the controversial topics. I especially enjoy the manner in which you present the info. I don't feel that you are "preechy" or suggest that your interpretations and theories are the only right ones. You present the information, along with your expert opinion, and the opinions of other experts, which moves me to think and explore these theories in greater depth. You raise many valid points and your explanations are every bit as likely as some of those who do not agree with you. Thank you very much for the interesting and stimulating spin you put on these issues.
Thanks very much.
Thank you for the information. I would like to pass along to Scott and everyone at Committee Films my deepest thanks. Spending the day filming at Petrified Forest National Park was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Best wishes to you all!
Thank you very much!
Mr. Scott Wolter -
This is just a note to thank you for your rather heroic intellectual courage. I am a physician who lives in […] MN and have read "the Hooked X", watched your shows on H channel, and have read the blogs. It just seemed important to point out that you have many who appreciate your efforts and are a "silent majority" not on any radar screen.
Noel […] M.D.
To Scott Wolter of America Unearthed,
My name is Michelle and I'm following your show on H2 like a hawk. Growing up my dad taught me to question everything and to always seek the Truth. Your motives and approach are inspirational to me.
I wonder all the time what I could do to help you in your search.
Thanks for all you do and I wish you all the best.
After watching – and enjoying – America Unearthed, I did a little web surfing to learn more about you and your background. I was surprised to find so much bad press and opinions. You impressed me as a regular sort of guy who is not too impressed with puffing himself up. Other folks sure must see you differently. Or, perhaps, they just don’t like your subject matters. Sort of like a lawyer discrediting a witness because he did something 30 years ago – that has no relevance to his testimony. Anyway, forget about people like that.
I work in an engineering office and need to deal with PG’s on a regular basis. Mining permits, Proctor tests, and the like. Great, down-to- earth people (no pun intended). I was sorry to read of the tragic circumstances surrounding the loss of your father. I lost my Dad 25 years ago, and still think of and miss him every day. You never get over it, really. But I’m sure that your Dad would be proud of you and your accomplishments.
I greatly enjoy America Unearthed and appreciate your contributions to the geology field. The ancient peopling of the Americas and pre-Columbian visits have always been of great interest to me, and your shows stir renewed interest. I understand that your shows present subjects in a dramatic format, but, hey, that’s why they’re called “shows“. If it was all dry as dirt (again, no pun intended), no one would watch them. Keep it up, and to Hell with Covalito and the like.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
I'm a big fan of America Unearthed. I realized something curious when I googled your name. A guy named Colovito comes up. He goes on to bash you and I saw you posted there too. I applaud you for sticking up for yourself. […] You have made enemies and that is a good thing. The questions you ask are enlightening. You must be doing something right because archaeologists are slinging mud at you. They don't even think you should be doing the things you are doing and want you to stick to geology. Geology has a place in archaeology. Please keep doing the things that you are doing. The show is great. I hope you discredit all of the pompous academics who are bashing you.
Hi ..my name is justin […] and I live in Appleton, Wisconsin. I just wanted to leave a quick message to say thank you. Long story short, about 18 months ago I was awarded full custody of my then 8 yr old daughter, we've always been close but when she came to live with me, there was a period of time when things were... a little tense. This is where you come in.... [She] is an avid explorer of many things, one of the more prevalent....is rocks! She also loves history, and situations that involve following clues and solving problems. Having the truth be known and not hiding stuff to "fit the mold" are all qualities that my little girl holds most dear... She's way beyond her years in some ways... Anyway, I too find all these things to be captivating.... We discovered your show, and immediately we had something to be level on... the work you do and the way you do it.... We think its cool!! Over the last year we have gotten super close and things couldn't be better... We still watch your show, read your books as well as others, and discuss everything together... Its really cool... So again, thank you Scott.... Indirectly, you have helped a father and daughter get through some pretty rough times, and become closer.
