Reviews

"Illuminates an intriguing fact of what it means to be human: to want--to need--stories, tall tales, myths, answers . . . hope."--San Diego Union-Tribune

"A sound case study of contemporary . . . mythmaking, as well as an excellent and objective account of a very curious, and potent, period in American history."--Journal of American Folklore

"UFO Crash at Roswell . . . searches for answers about why so many believe in the crash of a flying saucer at Roswell, how these beliefs came to be, and their meaning. Highly recommended."--Curtis Peebles, author of Watch the Skies!

"UFO Crash at Roswell persuasively explains the wreckage that is key to Roswell; the later tales of alien intrusion; and the varying assumptions, hopes, and fears that likely motivate these tales."--Stewart Guthrie, Professor of Anthropology, Fordham University

"After reading this groundbreaking book, you can't look at the Roswell Incident the same way, whether you're a believer, a skeptic, or uncommitted."--Albuquerque Journal

"Thought-provoking reading."--Anthropological Forum
