1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Book, 9 July 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunt for the Skinwalker (Paperback)
I am afraid this book is not for the serious fortean researcher, for a start much of it is related to second hand witness accounts, which may be true but the author makes no attempt at critical analysis. He also commits the cardinal error of over dramatising the events when he was not there to witness them himself.

No explanation is given to why the events all but stopped when the Gormans moved out, for in reality they did leaving the investigators to investigate what could have been clever hoaxes or natural phenomena, in fact in becomes painfully obvious as the book proceeds that following the purchase of the ranch by NIDS nothing really happened that could not be explained away or was a hoax.

There is also much padding in the book the author regales us with his opinion of Masonic history (which is open to question) on the some pretexts or other

The book is full of contradictions, but the most glaring of all is that there are no photographs considering all the reported things going on you would think that a few plates would be included.

In short this is a poor book, whilst it may interest those with only a light understanding or the credulous, for many people it will leave them feeling very disappointed

Explanations ARE explicitly given by the author for changes in activity after the Gormans departed. Did R B Wood read this book?

I did and found it balanced and well researched. The entire 2nd half of the book is analysis and explorations of possible explanations. Kelleher advises when speculating and even then speculation is grounded in evidence.

Recommended and one of the best on this topic.

Especially recommended if you have read any of David Paulides Missing 411 books.
