Remigio Baca's book is likely valuable and interesting to students of UFO lore in America and especially in New Mexico. I am reviewing the book because I am mentioned several times in it, most prominently in the acknowledgments. Baca and I did indeed grow up together in San Antonio, N.M., as stated in his book, and I did indeed write a story based on his and a friends alleged witnessing it. It was in two parts in the Socorro-Magdalena Mountain Mail, a small semi-weekly newspaper with a circulation of less than a thousand, now defunct. The newspaper story appeared in the Halloween issue (I stress Halloween) in 2003, and while it was written in a serious tone, I was never comfortable with many of Baca's assertions that went into his book. The newspaper story I wrote essentially continued a theme of alleged UFO sightings in New Mexico of national and international interest, dating back to an alleged UFO crash near Roswell, N.M. The Roswell incident, which the military was involved in, included an alleged dead alien, resulted in worldwide publicity and the construction of a still extant tourist museum there. There was also a long-running story of a UFO witnessed by Socorro policeman Lonnie Zamora that received national attention and drew careful scrutiny from New Mexico U.S. Congressman Steve Shiff. The story I wrote "went viral" also. Roswell also built its own UFO Museum, still active and well attended. Within a few days of the Reme Baca story's appearance the Mountain Mail received several dozen letters from readers of the newspaper. There were also many follow up stories in other media, including a version published by Rense.com. Soon thereafter, Baca began giving speeches to UFO groups and made talk radio appearances.Read more ›

I have been waiting for the release of this book . Reme tells of a most astounding experience that he had at a very young age . For the longest time he kept this story mostly to himself , which was quite an emotional burden for someone to carry most of his life . I am glad Reme has told his story , and got it off his chest . You will be hard pressed to find an experience that matches this one for a SEVEN year old boy . Good luck Reme !
