Overview

In this unique study, Psychic Animals, well-known psychic investigator Dennis Bardens presents a persuasive body of evidence revealing and documenting remarkable feats of telepathy, precognition and long-distance perception, as well as other mysterious phenomena of the animal kingdom. Throughout the ages animals of all kinds have displayed amazing powers of psychic intelligence, which have often proved as bizarre and inexplicable as any strictly human paranormal experiences.

Among the many fascinating accounts of extraordinary animal behavior included here are the stories of the horse that helped police locate the body of a murdered boy, the stowaway dog that sailed 5,000 miles to find his master, and the seagull that sought help for an injured woman. The unusual bonds that can be forged between people and animals in the everyday world are demonstrated in the fact that monkeys have learned to be personal attendants for quadriplegics! Throughout history, too, there have been instances of dolphins saving swimmers from drowning, and scientists today are seriously interested in the evidence that various species of creatures seem to give advance warning of natural disasters such as earthquakes.

Even more puzzling are the extraordinary tales of ghostly cats and dogs, phantom horses and other supernatural occurrences that have been observed by credible human witnesses. The author explores a rich range of these instances and also examines the human tendency since ancient times to worship animals as gods.

Stories abound of animals, particularly pets, saving lives or warning of natural calamities. Bardens has collected a multitude of these vignettes from ancient times to the present, all intended as a demonstration that animals possess ESP (as he defines it). Dogs and cats dominate the first half of the book; later chapters cover other animals. Despite the subtitle, readers will find minimal analysis of these creatures' ESP. Easy reading, but not a necessary purchase. Michael D. Cramer, Virginia Polytechnic Inst. & State Univ. Lib., Blacksburg

YA-- Telepathy, precognition, and reports of ghostly apparitions fill this book about animals that will appeal to readers hungry for more books on the paranormal. The rapport that exists between animals and humans in the form of myth, friendship, and religion is explored through the centuries from Aristotle to Brazilian fishermen in 1985. The volume is chock-full of fascinating accounts of how other species have rescued or helped humans in distress. Instances of intelligence and altruism as well as foreknowledge by animals of impending doom are interspersed with imagination-stretching tales such as the one of a horse who could speak short but intelligible sentences. While many experiments are alluded to, and an extensive bibliography is provided, the book lacks strong connections between the anecdote and the source from which it originated. Stories related from past centuries, news articles from the 1920s, or tales from the Middle Ages can leave readers grasping for sources. However, casual readers will be fascinated by the abundant claims and tales of animal intelligence, psyche, and ESP.-- Gwen Salama, Hastings High Sch . , Alief, TX
