It's the epitome of High Strangeness, with a botched alien abduction attempt in the forests near Lake Tahoe.
I loved this book, and would recommend it to anyone interested in the abduction phenomenon.
Great true story of an encounter with aliens plus the effects on the person it happened to. Trust me if you are a ufo believer this is a must read. Detailed with much data.
Some editorial cons:
* Repetitive (filler?) text and pictures, maps and drawings. E.g., How many low-resolution pictures of the "bow" described in the incident do I need to see? Do I really need to see more than one picture/drawing of the "tree" that the incident took place in, or the robots, etc.?
* Speculative text. For example, the authors spend a page or so of the book debating about the worldly makeup of the "knock-out" gas mentioned in the narrative (i.e. "nitrogen, argon, [or] helium[?]"). Really? They are writing about UFOs, aliens, and robots that are clearly non-terrestrial and have highly advanced ET technology and they are speculating which Earth-based gas it might have been made out of?
Finally, besides considering why someone would think being in a tree would protect you from tree-climbing bears, I wonder that instead of the witness spending years in "emotional terror" of the situation described in the book, it might instead have been a "spiritual awakening" moment, where you are gifted with the knowledge that we are ABSOLUTELY not alone in this Universe and all that such knowledge implies. Unfortunately, the book only brings forth Mr. Shrum's negative aspects of the encounter and we are not given any real insight into any positive (if any) changes that incident may have brought into Shrum's life.
After all, any human who goes into a forest (or crosses the street) runs the risk of being shot, abducted, or killed -- but very few of us are given an opportunity to meet ETs face-to-face, and it is up to us to see the experience, and how it affects our life, as Negative or Positive.
