More About the Author

History, belief, and folklore combine to create paranormal legends that challenge what we know about how the universe works. But are these legends more than just stories? What can we learn about ourselves in exploring the unexplained? Meet Jeff Belanger, the ultimate paranormal insider.

There's a relationship between ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, strange monsters, ancient mysteries, and other bizarre phenomena. These concepts offer us a path to our past, a connection with our fellow human beings in our present, and a way to ponder our own inevitable future. Though no one can explain exactly how it all works, few can match Jeff's ability to bring the odd out of the fringe and into our living rooms and near our office water coolers.

Belanger's approach is fun and informative. He brings a lot of personality and knowledge to his work. He's the author of a dozen books that have been published in six languages, he's the writer and researcher for the Ghost Adventures show on the Travel Channel, the host of the widely popular Web and cable talk show 30 Odd Minutes, he's a sought-after lecturer who speaks at dozens of events per year for audiences big and small, and he's a recognized media personality appearing on over 200 radio and television programs worldwide including: The History Channel, The Travel Channel, PBS, Living TV (UK), The Maury Show, The CBS News Early Show, National Public Radio, The BBC, Australian Radio Network, Coast to Coast AM, and The 'X' Zone.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Picture Yourself Legend Tripping" is a good, concise introduction to the paranormal, best for those who have yet to delve into the subject. Belanger, a writer for the Travel Channel's sometimes silly Ghost Adventures, covers all the bases, from Atlantis to zombies, and includes advice on acquiring equipment, interviewing witnesses, researching local legends and writing reports. His own writing style is casual and conversational, with corny jokes and plays on words.

If you know little about the paranormal, or so far have limited your research to only one aspect, this is a good book for you. It tells you enough about all the facets of the subject to let you decide what to investigate next. On the other hand, if you've been at this for a while, you probably won't learn very much.

So, my bottom line is, if you want a good overview, try this book. If you already know about MUFON, the Nazca lines, chupacabra and the upcoming apocalypse, you might want to look for more focused material.

If you enjoyed reading the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew stories and pictured yourself out there with them or watched the movie "The Goonies" and craved to go out have an adventure like them, than you are a Legend Tripper. My wife Tracy and I love to got out each weekend and go out and look for Bigfoot or go on a ghost hunt or just find some place where a legend started. I didn't know there was a term for people like us until I purchased and read Jeff Belanger's Legend Tripping. After you read this book, you are going to want to grab your family and get out and go see what is out there. Every state and I mean every state has some mystery place or legend to go see. This book is a great start to get your trip planned. Jeff has down a great job putting the book together. The whole family can enjoy this book. Parents, I warn you if you let your kids read the book, you had better be prepared to get up off the couch and take your kids on a legend trip. They are going to want to go Legend Tripping. I promise you will not be dispointed. Legend Tripping can bring a family together. Any family can go to Disney World or go see the Grand Canyon. Try taking your family on a Bigfoot hunt or go find a place that is suppose to be haunted (proved that it is not off limits or private property) and see what happens. Now those are memories to last forever.

It was by a local legend and I hope they didn't take a picture!! If so it probably would be in Jeff's next book!! This book was a great read it gave his personal beliefs on different subjects and legends were. If you yourself are looking for a motivator to get out there yourself for the first time this book should be the motivator you are looking for!! I myself had always been intrigued by the paranormal and am involved in a group that performs localized research on the subject. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff two years ago at a lecture and figured I would give his book a try. If you have a chance to attend a lecture or to read one of his books he is a real entertaining individual (and I mean that in a good way).

I just finished PY Legend Tripping and I loved it! It was full of interesting stories, facts and tips on how to get started on your own Legend Trip. If you have any interest in the Paranormal or are just looking for interesting vacation ideas, this book is a MUST HAVE. Jeff Belanger's sense of humor shines through and makes you feel like he is right there with you, explaining every popular legend you have ever heard before and everything you need to know to discover your own legends.

I've read several of Jeff's books, and they are awesome. He is very entertaining, also a very interesting guy. I was lucky enough to meet him last year and get his autograph. Picture Yourself Legend Tripping was an awesome book! I loved reading it. It definitely makes you want to go out and explore all these things. This book is very highly recommended.
