    In the 1970's, I had a friend whose brother lived in Albuquerque

    In the 1970's, I had a friend whose brother lived in Albuquerque attending the University of New Mexico. I was offered a place to stay in the city by my friend's brother if I wanted to attend UNM. Since I was finishing up an AA at a community college in New Jersey, I decided to apply to UNM and accept the offer of a place to break into New Mexico life. Of course, I was thrilled about the prospect of attending a large university like UNM, but I was secretly thrilled about something else. I had been reading about UFO's since the late 1950's and was well aware of New Mexico's unique history in ufology, I was thrilled that I might finally get to see one at the U.S. epicenter of the UFO phenomenon - New Mexico.

    Preston Dennet does a superb job of bringing this unique history to light. This book transcends a regional interest in the phenomenon since New Mexico is one of the most visited states of all of them and has a history of sightings that run the gamut from nocturnal lights to close encounters and crash retrievals. Anyone who is interested in the UFO phenomenon should be aware of its history in the state of New Mexico; it is as central and as important to the UFO phenomenon as Gettysburg is to the Civil War, Verdun is to World War I, or Normandy is to World War II. I thoroughly enjoyed and was well informed of a whole slew of sightings and incidents that I had never heard of before. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the UFO phenomenon and wants to achieve a deeper understanding of unique the importance of the state to the totality of the phenomenon.

    Although I lived in Albuquerque from 1976 to 1981, I never got a chance to have my own sighting, but I did get a chance to explore one of my other passions - spaghetti westerns. I also learned exactly why it is called, appropriately, the Land of Enchantment. Maybe it's not just us terrestrial folks who are enchanted by it.
