There is no need to stretch or enhance anything. This is a no BS zone. The book also gives us an intimate glance into the current reservation scene and the social dynamics. Sixkiller's academic training combined with her very big heart strike the perfect balance between rationaility and intellectual adventure. She genuinely cares for these people, and they all sensed that and opened up for her.
I do hope she will tackle some other forteana in the near future. American Indian sasquatch stories would be high on my list.
While the only criticism I have of the book is that the author reportedly interviewed over 900 people and yet the stories presented in this book are only a fraction of that number. The book left me wanting to read more and more or to personally sit down with the author and pick her brain about the stories she did not tell. In fact, the stories are so unique and unusual, that each could be a featured film.
With this book, Dr. Clarke has joined the ranks of Budd Hopkins and Dr. David Jacobs and other greats in UFO studies, but unlike other researchers, Dr. Clarke's interviewees did not rely on hypnosis. Rather, they told their stories as they recalled them which makes them far more believable.
I give the book 5 stars and would give it more if I could. If you are a believer or just simply curious about the subject, you will not be disappointed in this book.
I predict this book will become a classic in UFO research. If nothing else, it is not a book you will easily forget.
The sweet part is the relationships Ms Clarke establishes with her interviewees. It seems that the customs of American Indians foster a friendly connection between people. According to the book, it's traditional to take small gifts or food when you visit someone's home, even to cook for them. Even total strangers. She bonded with most of her storytellers and maintained contact with most of them well past her interviews. You finish the book really liking Clarke and her new friends a lot.
The story about the snowplow is my favorite.
