True-Schmoo...it's a fun read!
on October 24, 2010
It was a half-century ago when my mother and I entered the dark,dusky interior of an old used bookstore on Market Street, in downtown St.Louis Missouri.
I was about ten years old, but I already had a burning interest in Flying Saucers, as most people called them back then.
It was a hot topic, and Saucer sightings were in the news all the time. I ate up every book and story I could find about these strange objects in the sky.
Then I saw a blue copy of Gray Barker's "They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers", and mom let me buy it.
This book hooked me for a lifetime wanting to know everything about UFO's.
Finally, I saw one myself, in September of 1969, with three witnesses...a red glowing, silent egg-shaped light no more than 500 feet above us. It stuck around too, while we got out of the car and gazed upon it in silent wonder.
This glowing thing was a UFO in the strictest definition, but I have no idea what it was or where it came for, but it behaved like it was intelligently controlled, and it was very scary!
Back to Mr. Gray's book...skeptics nowadays say it was bogus from the start, but it's a great read, and like another reviewer said, it does belong in the canon of UFO literature.
I hope all of you reading this review gets to read this book and enjoy it as much as I did!
