In her book The World Before (1976) Montgomery presented a pseudohistoric account of the earth which involved the lost continents of Mu and Atlantis. The book was written through automatic writing, Montgomery claimed the information was given to her by her spirit guides.
Montgomery held a number of unorthodox ideas. She had claimed humans had existed with dinosaurs on earth for millions of years. She had claimed the first humans were 12 feet tall giants and had produced offspring with large animals. She wrote that the “original sin was co-habiting with animals” but Later God introduced a law so kinds can only produce after their kind and that man could no longer procreate with "beasts, birds and fish". She claimed the offspring of the early humans and animals on earth were "half human forms" which had existed for millions of years such as Centaurs, satyrs and nymphs.
