About the Author
Art Campbell is a retired teacher living in Oregon. He holds two college degrees: a bachelors in fine art education and a masters of science in education. Mr. Campbell has held educational positions as a high school counselor, career counselor, and high schools principal. He retired in 1989. Mr. Campbell has gained some reputation as a historical writer in his home state of Oregon. In addition a lead article published in the Oregon Historical Quarterly, he has previously authored two published books on Oregon history: John Day Drift and Historical Guide (Frank Amato Publications, Inc., Portland, Oregon, 1980), which was in print for 27 years. This guide book covers drifting techniques for 66 miles of river travel, with descriptions of camping locations, rapid conditions, plus pioneer history on both sides of the river. Antelope: The Saga of a Western Town (Maverick Press, Bend, Oregon, 1990), which was in print for 7 years. This book covers the definitive history of this small Western town, from the town’s raucous beginning as a stage stop during the Civil War through the Rajneesh intrusion in the early 1980s. Both books received favorable reviews and endorsements by the state’s leading newspaper, The Oregonian. Mr. Campbell began his UFO investigative work in the late 1950s. He was the director of NICAP (National Investigative Committee on Aerial Phenomena) chapter in Kansas City Missouri in 1958-59. He worked with Donald E. Keyhoe on a key investigation of an early contact claim of George Adamski, which was disproven by the investigators.

In some ways, this book easily earns the 5 stars for its content and the massive work and effort put into it. But I simply have to dock it at least one star due to it being a "diamond in the rough" which is long on carat weight and short on polish. The lack of copy editing and proofreading, is painfully obvious. It is long and dense enough in its content that a couple of editing iterations past a couple of types of badly-needed professional editors would have probably been too expensive to make publishing this book practical. I understand that, and I do thank the author for publishing it anyway, as-is. Not having gotten the book into print would have been far worse than any number of copy-editing errors. There were plenty of "sounds like" word selection errors (it almost seemed that parts of it were created by handing audio dictation to a typist who understanbably got the context of some things wrong), sentences where a word was moved from one end of a sentence to the other but the duplicate not removed, or partial sentences that were clearly missing words or phrases that the author intended included, etc.
By the end of the book you'll see that there was much repetition also, but I'll credit some of that as being helpful in letting many of the chapters stand quite well on their own, without remembering everything from every previous chapter as a prerequisite to reading/understanding things later in the book.
Just realize that you're buying this for the raw content which documents the painstaking, valuable, and almost uniquely successful long-term research and fieldwork of the author and others. The case the author makes is in some ways so strong that you can be quite certain that he (and every other person and testing lab involved) will eventually be subjected to disinformation campaigns, personal attacks, accusations of incompetence, accusations of hoaxing, and so forth. Maybe even pressure to recant enough to give plausible deniability!
This remarkable work weaves together evidence from every possible angle to enhance our knowledge of how this event happened, who first encountered the debris, and how it was covered up, then rediscovered.
Including the photos of people involved, such as the workers doing some of the digging, was great. Most of the time these people are never even mentioned, but their contributions are significant.
The military did not do as good a clean up as it did at Roswell. Roswell completely distracted people from this crash miles away. I hope the entire UFO community realizes what an outstanding book this is, and gets the recognition it deserves. Thanks for the years of research, it is a huge contribution with actual artifacts to analyze.
