Captured!: The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experienceby Stanton T. Friedman, Kathleen Marden, Bruce Maccabee (Foreword by)
The 1961 UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill stirred worldwide interest, because of the book The Interrupted Journey, the subsequent media coverage, and a 1975 TV movie. The case is mentioned in almost all UFO abduction books. It also became a target for debunkers, who still attack it today. But the complete story of what really happened that day, its effect on the participants, and the findings of investigators has never been told...until now.
In Captured!, you'll get an insider's look at the alien abduction, previously unpublished information about the lives of the Hills before and after Barney's death in 1969, their status as celebrities, Betty's experiences as a UFO investigator, and other activities before her death in 2004. Kathleen Marden, Betty Hill's niece, shares details from her discussions with Betty and from the evidence of the UFO abduction. She also looks at the Hills' riveting hypnosis sessions about their time onboard the spacecraft. In addition, coauthor, physicist, and ufologist Stanton T. Friedman, the original civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident, reviews and refutes the arguments of those who have attacked the Hill case, as well as the star map that Betty Hill saw inside the craft and later recreated.

After reading this book & meeting with Ms. Marden, I have no doubt of the accuracy of the evidence given. I feel this did occur, the Hills were abducted, simply based on the weight of evidence. We should be taking a serious, sober look at extraterrestrial activities and their ultimate goals.

This book is written to further catalog the story of Betty and Barney Hill. It does not prove or disprove anything. It elaborates on the story and gives more in depth analysis on the subject through the eyes of a family member. I liked that the author gave more access to the actual recordings from the hypnosis sessions. The book is not an easy read. It reads like a text book at times. Still, if you are interested in this subject it is a good book to have read.
After slogging through some pretty dull text 'and mostly irrelevant sidebars', I don't think anyone's mind will be changed. Clearly, something happened to the Hills, but nothing in this book convinces it was what they 'remembered' in hypnosis or dreamed. They showed some signs of PTSS, but its true source can never be known since so much time has passed and they're now deceased. What this book does convey is the Hills were good people, with many loving friends and family, who were genuinely upset and perplexed by their experience.
