Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah
The author of the controversial bestseller Brain Trust brings his scientific expertise to the chilling true story of unexplained phenomena on Utah's Skinwalker Ranch -- and challenges us with a new vision of reality.
For more than fifty years, the bizarre events at a remote Utah ranch have ranged from the perplexing to the wholly terrifying. Vanishing and mutilated cattle. Unidentified Flying Objects. The appearance of huge, otherworldly creatures. Invisible objects emitting magnetic fields with the power to spark a cattle stampede. Flying orbs of light with dazzling maneuverability and lethal consequences. For one family, life on the Skinwalker Ranch had become a life under siege by an unknown enemy or enemies. Nothing else could explain the horrors that surrounded them -- perhaps science could.
Leading a first-class team of research scientists on a disturbing odyssey into the unknown, Colm Kelleher spent hundreds of days and nights on the Skinwalker property and experienced firsthand many of its haunting mysteries. With investigative reporter George Knapp -- the only journalist allowed to witness and document the team's work -- Kelleher chronicles in superb detail the spectacular happenings the team observed personally, and the theories of modern physics behind the phenomena. Far from the coldly detached findings one might expect, their conclusions are utterly hair-raising in their implications. Opening a door to the unseen world around us, Hunt for the Skinwalker is a clarion call to expand our vision far beyond what we know.

To put it bluntly, the information in this might be interesting to those looking for something involving UFOlogy, as the anecdotal evidence is mainly concerned with floating orbs, strange flying ... Read full review
I found this book to be a smorgasbord of unbelievable, ridiculous events that made absolutely no sense whatsoever and was more of an insult to your intelligence than anything else. Giant wolves, flying saucers, witches, poltergeists,burial grounds, Predators, ghosts, Sasquatches, flying orbs, cattle mutilations, giant water serpents, doorways to other dimensions, invisible entities, laser beams frying dogs and the list goes on and on.
Right off the bat the "wolf" chapter is where it derails completely off the track of any sense of reality. Who in their right mind would let a giant wolf 3 times the size of a normal wolf whose head was as high as a 6 foot plus man's chest casually saunter up to you and then pet it!? Then call your kids over?! "hey kids come over here and look at this giant ass wolf!" Yeah right! Then end up shooting it multiple times with 357 magnum and a 30.06 point blank range after it tries to eat your livestock and it just runs away like the bullets were spit balls and suffers no ill effects! Seriously?! This garbage is the figment of someone's imagination that to me was enhanced by an overdose of LSD.
The author tried to cover the bases of all horror tales in one ridiculous fell swoop! Reminds of that awful movie "In the Name of the King"; pure garbage! I was wondering what chapter Dracula, the Loch Ness Monster and Frankenstein were going to make their appearance!
Seriously folks DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME reading this mind numbing hog wash!
I give it minus 5 stars
