This review is from: Really Mysterious Pennsylvania: UFOs, Bigfoot & Other Weird Encounters Casebook One (Paperback)
Until I read this book, I had no idea that Pennsylvania experienced so many mysterious events. I knew of some of them, such as Kecksburg and thunderbirds, but I somehow missed the 1973-74 spate of occurrences, especially in western PA where I was born and raised. Stan Gordon succeeds in chronicling these events in a well-written, well-researched and invigorating book. Thus, he performs an invaluable service to PA. The book can also be unnerving. I was disturbed to discover the numerous Bigfoot sightings so close to my childhood home. Mr. Gordon provides much detail for each event, but he never makes them boring. He is also unbiased--if he can't verify something, he says so. If you need more proof of his credibility, note that police units all over PA refer witnesses to him when they report sightings to the police. I was impressed! Until now, I've been leery of believing outright in UFO's, Bigfoots, Thunderbirds, and even black panthers in PA, but the sheer volume of eyewitness accounts forces me to acknowledge that all of these people couldn't be liars or crazy. If you decide to buy this book, do yourself a favor and also buy his other new book, "Silent Invasion-The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook". It is just as fascinating as this one.
One final note. Mr Gordon is--refreshingly--an excellent writer. Cherish this since there are probably more people who have witnessed Bigfoot than can write the English language so competently.
