Logically presented with some logical conclusions/suppositions at the end of the book.
The book is an excellent read and I highly recommend it to anyone with interest in either the Bigfoot or UFO phenomenon.
This is an excellent casebook of Bigfoot and UFO sightings in Pennsylvania in the early seventies.

In the field of UFO and paranormal research, certain years stand out among others. Thus we have 1947 best remembered for Kenneth Arnold's historic sighting over Mt. Rainier, 1952 for the "UFO siege" of Washington, D.C., 1961 for the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, and so forth.

But of all these years, perhaps none is so important as 1973 - a year of no special significance to the younger reader, or to those recently entering the field, but all too memorable to those who actively researched anomalies, or those who just followed their exploits in the press of the time. Dubbed "The Year of the Humanoids", 1973 represented the high-water mark of CE-3s occurring in the outer space of the roads, fields and byways of our world as opposed to the "inner space" of homes and bedrooms, where the contemporary abduction phenomenon now occurs.

In an age that seeks to distill the high-strangeness and anomalous properties of UFO cases, an alchemy bent on finding nothing but nuts-and-bolts in the crucible, it is refreshing to find a book like Stan Gordon's Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook, which looks back at the year 1973 and the events that occurred in the Keystone State. A moment in time so baffling and filled with activity that law enforcement turned to researchers of arcane for assistance.

Luckily, Stan Gordon happened to be in the right place and the right time, ably assisted by the team of researchers collectively known as the Westmoreland County UFO Study Group. During the fever pitch of activity, which began with unexplained aerial lights and encompassed some of the most active (and hair-raising) sightings of the paranormal humanoid known as Bigfoot, phone calls were coming in at all hours of the day.

Having been acquainted with Stan Gordon for several years now, I can assure readers that he is a stand-up guy whose dedication to researching the UFO phenomenon, mysterious creatures, and other anomalous events is clearly evident. His professionalism is second to none and demonstrated through his diligence in examining facts, interviewing witnesses, and fairly reporting on all strange events in Western Pennsylvania. After many decades of first-hand investigation and collection of evidence, Stan Gordon has compiled an extremely compelling casebook of weird but closely related events that transpired throughout the Keystone State in the early 1970s. For many years, I have been interested in Ufology and Cryptids (particularly "Bigfoot"), but those subjects are often treated completely separately with no apparent relation to one another. For the first time in my experience, Silent Invasion has made for a really interesting case linking them together -- and the implications could be staggering.

I, for one, also greatly appreciated Stan's "just-the-facts" style and presentation. While he does offer his opinions and examines possible explanations for these events when necessary, his journalistic integrity shines through by simply presenting each case "as-is" without any filters or biases so that readers can form their own opinions. I do not need to go into an extensive overview of the case-files in this book, as other reviewers have already done an excellent job of that already. However, I will say that speaking as someone who was not around at the time to experience the events and news reports as they transpired, I found it extremely interesting to read over the reports and learn about key sightings and weird occurrences that happened in local areas that I knew from my childhood.

After numerous years in the making, Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO Bigfoot Casebook is well worth the wait! This latest book released by long time researcher Stan Gordon is reminiscent of what one might see on the big screen. It has all the makings of an old fashion science fiction movie complete with encounters of strange hominid like creatures, UFO's, and some of the most unusual experiences ever documented. However, Silent Invasion is anything but Fiction! As they say some times "truth" is stranger than fiction and that is just the case in Stan's latest Book. Stan Gordon takes the reader on a very unusual journey down "memory lane." Take a trip back in 37 years, as Stan recalls many of the cases investigated of the strangest accounts in Pennsylvania history during the two year period in the Early 1970's.

The book begins discussing the unusual 1973 wave of UFO sightings in Pennsylvania which continues into 1974. Then without warning, things become stranger in July 1974 with the first reported encounter with an 8 foot tall upright foul smelling creature with glowing red eyes spying on a man through his bathroom window. This kicked off a wave of creature sightings and occurrences that quickly escalated in number like never before recorded and have not been anything like it since. There are cases in the book that were so bizarre it left Stan and his research group puzzled by what they were truly dealing with.

In the book, Stan discusses some of these more unusual cases of "high strangeness involving only UFO's and these hominid creatures. These cases of "high strangeness" include incidents where not only creatures were reported, but strange lights and craft were seen at the same time or in the nearby vicinity.
