Front Cover
Red Wheel/Weiser, Feb 22, 2016 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 257 pages
The children of Roswell UFO eyewitnesses tell their personal stories of government surveillance, coercion, disappearances, and more.

Despite the government’s best efforts to explain it away, the Roswell incident of 1947—in which an unidentified flying object was recovered by US Army personnel—remains as fascinating as ever. Parents who were present during or immediately after the incident may have passed on, but their children know what happened. And over the years, they have paid dearly for their knowledge.

In The Children of Roswell, their shocking stories are revealed. In these pages, you will learn the truth about:
  • The daughter of a witness to an alien body who discovered that her phone had been bugged for years.
  • How the US Air Force tried to change the mind of the son of the Roswell intelligence officer in 1995.
  • What really became of the son of the principle witness, who disappeared in 1960.
