This book reads like an introduction to all that is strange in this world. The book was interesting cover to cover, but it fell short of what it could have been. For example, why was the chunk of the first wolf not collected? Why was the 'don't dig' instruction not fully questioned? Why weren't the remains of the incinerated dogs investigated? Why was the previous ranch owner allowed unsupervised access to the property throughout the investigation of his claims? Why shoot at human-like figures that did nothing more than hide in trees and bushes at night? These questions expose some very un-scientific and poor forensic behavior if you ask me. The authors seemed to purposefully do more to perpetuate the paranormal mysteries, all while promoting other paranormal experts, than they did to answer any questions. This book plays on fear of the unknown and has a hook for virtually everybody. Throw a pile at the wall and see what sticks. This is a good marketing technique and I am sure the authors and publishers a laughing all the way to the bank.

I thoroughly enjoy this book. I am a native of the area and to finally have someone put this down in writing was exciting. As a youngster we all deal with superstition and are taught not to ask why. We tend to think our older people are just crazy to say things. Native people are taught to respect all forms of life and know that there is evil and unexplained whys. I feel this book gives everyone an oppurtunity to know that there still is an explaination for the traditions and superstitions that are in everyone's life, no matter what origin they are from.

A compendium of crazy, dangerous and unexplainable things that kept happening on this Utah ranch. But how much are we not being told, and why no follow-up to certain things? Examples: (1) the no digging demand of the previous owners - what are they hiding? It's not reasonable to think that there shouldn't be digging on a ranch; (2) The Zen-like bulletproof wolf who runs off and disappears into thin air (3) the prized bulls that were mysteriously moved to a small, locked trailer in the span of a few minutes;(4) The WWII military pilot with the same last name (Gorman) as the ranch owner - what's up with that? (5) the vandalized cameras where another running camera recorded nothing; (6) the message "we are watching you" - this sound a little like paranoia. So many of the events were the testimony of the ranch owner, so this always begs the question of validity. Even the scientists seemed to be prone to emotional interpretations, such as the black monster coming out of the tunnel. Like so many of these accounts, these events have a certain disconnected, dreamlike or delusional quality about them. They make no sense at all, and this should require a more rigorous investigation.

I thought this was an excellent book. Not only was it well researched, but written well. The stories of events at the "Gorman" ranch are the kind that really make you wonder what is going on out there in the world, but also will have you on the edge of your seat. Creepy, but thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

If you're into the paranormal then this book will be a hit with you. The encounters that the Gormans have on the ranch are amazing.

This book deals with the "outer fringes" of UFO lore. Are there other dimensions, inhabited by non-human entities, which we encounter as they pass through our world? The family which lived on this remote Utah ranch was finally driven off by these encounters. An excellent book!

This review is solely for the ebook. All text is centered instead of having words align with the left and right sides, so when the fonts are enlarged only 1 or 2 words appear at the center of each line. This looks awful and I will not buy this ebook unless the problem is fixed. I reported the issue to Barnes & Noble last week, but so far nothing has been done to fix this.
