Overview

The fascinating stories of flying humanoids from around the world

A strange creature with gigantic, blood-red embers for eyes crept out of the dark in West Virginia. Dozens of witnesses reported seeing the winged beast—later identified as the Mothman—take flight, chasing cars at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.

Cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard has traveled the world collecting evidence on the Mothman, the Owlman, the Van Meter Creature, the Valkyrie of Voltana, the Houston Batman, and other strange “bird people” that have been sighted throughout history. Packed with famous historical cases and dozens of chilling first-person accounts, this is the first book to focus exclusively on flying humanoids—a wide array of airborne entities that seem to feed off our deepest fears.

    This was an interesting book to read. I have always been drawn to anything odd, paranormal and otherwise strange. I especially like this book because Ken worked hard to to include a great many countries and stories I had never heard of before. There were stories in Cornwall, Britain, South America, Mexico and at the top of the list our very West Virginia and the Mothman. I am rather drawn to the Jersey Devil as it has been spotted often in my husband's hometown of Swedesboro, New Jersey. I am always on the fence over these tales. Are they real or Hey, people do you really believe this? I believe there are things out there. Read this book and see for yourself.
