Gray Highway: An American UFO Journey [NOOK Book]

Overview

Lots of books promise to tell the truth about UFOs. To finally reveal whether or not humans are being tagged and studied like elk, if aliens are preparing for a final invasion, or if the government is lying to us to pursue a secret research agenda.

Overview

Lots of books promise to tell the truth about UFOs. To finally reveal whether or not humans are being tagged and studied like elk, if aliens are preparing for a final invasion, or if the government is lying to us to pursue a secret research agenda. This is not one of those books. In this book, two guys drive across the country to visit famous UFO sites and meet the people involved in historic events and present-day commercialism. For whatever the real explanation may be, it's easy to forget that the UFO phenomenon is a distinctly human one. For every sighting there is a witness, and for every abduction a victim or willing participant. And then there are the UFOlogists, the psychologists, psychiatrists, and hypnotists, the entrepreneurs, the reporters, the cranks, and the crazies. Mix well, salt to taste, and scatter across America. Mark where they land, see where they live, and draw a route to connect them all together. Then drive. This is the Gray Highway.

Editorial Reviews

Arcturus Book Service
The authors make an excruciating country-wide odyssey (in 1996) to "visit popular UFO sites, talk to people who had witnessed or been abducted by spacecraft (sic), and discover for themselves what all the noise was about." ... It's all great fun, hilariously sophomoric, and (as if by accident) a marvelously telling, tragi-comic, funhouse mirror image of not only the UFO scene, but panoramic America as well. A great read.
Peter Jordan
[The authors'] comments on the loons, leeches, and luminaries of ufology are priceless--and refreshingly candid. This is the real charm of the book: its emphasis on personality, rather than on the dryness of raw data. Imagine a cross-country UFO tour with Hunter Thompson as your guide, and you'll develop a sense of the kind of fun house you'll be entering.
