UFO Hunters® follows the team of bestselling author William J. Birnes, former NASA physicist Dr. Ted Acworth, and former US Army engineer Pat Uskert as they investigate UFO cases around the world. The team’s access to UFO evidence is unparalleled―and their expertise allows them to quickly identify bogus claims.
Together, they use eyewitness accounts, scientific experimentation, documents recently released through the Freedom of Information Act, and footage that has never been seen on television to piece together compelling―and sometimes chilling―evidence of UFO phenomena. This book is the companion to the popular History® series and contains previously unseen documentary evidence and case details.
The official companion to the eponymous hit History Channel TV series, this book is a fun and fascinating peek behind the scenes of the short-lived show, and into the world of real-life UFO hunters. Each chapter focuses on a different episode, covering the sighting in question, background information, the making of the segment, and Birnes’s own thoughts on the finished episode and the case itself.
The book also provides a thorough and informative history of UFOlogy in the United States. Convincing arguments for and against the existence of UFOs are entertained, but a skeptical current runs throughout. Fans will especially relish anecdotes about the making of the show: Birnes (The Day After Roswell) describes, for instance, facing intense resistance from folks living near supposed crash sites; the crew was even shot at during the filming of the first episode. The author’s attention to detail and dedication to covering every angle makes this a must-have for devotees of the program, and it’s engrossing enough to lure newcomers into the weird world of UFOs.
