Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8. An examination of some of the most celebrated and thoroughly investigated UFO sightings and alien abductions recorded since 1947. Reports by American and Russian astronauts, the mysterious "face on Mars" controversy, and descriptions of alien encounters by many eyewitnesses are carefully and dispassionately presented. Generously illustrated with black-and-white photographs of landing sites and drawings made by or based on the descriptions of witnesses, the fascinating details of these incidents seem to point toward the likelihood that these experiences are real. The case of UFO sightings in England's Rendlesham Forest in 1980, the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill in 1961, and that of two Vermont camp counselors in 1968 have been part of many other books on UFOs, including James M. Deem's How to Catch a Flying Saucer (Houghton, 1991), but they are seldom recounted in such detail. The famous 1947 "Roswell Incident" of a crashed UFO in New Mexico is recounted from the viewpoints of dozens of witnesses rather than the three or four usually cited and it is followed through the revelation of an "alien autopsy" film in 1995. The inclusion of several cases not usually mentioned in books on this level is particularly intriguing. One account even tells how a North Dakota man believes that his alien abduction has been beneficial to his health. The addresses and telephone numbers of three American UFO organizations are appended.?Ann G. Brouse, Big Flats Branch Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 5^-8. Longtime nonfiction writer Kettelkamp turns his experienced hand to the subject of extraterrestrial reality. Although the book is evenhanded, with various explanations offered for strange phenomena, Kettelkamp clearly believes that something is going on. In a straightforward, nonhysterical manner, he presents a litany of evidence, including well-known cases, such as the UFO crash at Rosewell, New Mexico, and some that are less familiar but very impressive, such as the sightings of UFOs over Belgium, where the military, the police, and local citizens all shared information about the experience. Black-and-white drawings and photographs illustrate the text, and although this book is not as visually inviting as Marsh's Unidentified Flying Objects and Extraterrestrial Life , it is solid, well-researched material that readers can use for reports or for their own enlightenment.
