"On November 5, 1975 a group of loggers in the mountains of northeastern Arizona observed a strange, unusually bright light in the sky. One of those men, Travis Walton, recklessly left the safety of their truck to take a closer look. Suddenly, as he walked toward the light, Walton was blasted back by a bolt of mysterious energy." "His companions fled in fear. When they reported an encounter with a UFO - something they would have considered impossible if they had not witnessed it themselves - the men were suspected of murder. For five days authorities mounted a massive manhunt in search of Walton - or his body. Then Walton reappeared, disoriented and initially unable to tell the whole story of his terrifying encounter." "In Fire in the Sky Travis Walton relates in his own words the best documented account of alien abduction yet recorded, the story of his harrowing ordeal at the hands of silent captors and his return to a disbelieving world of hostile interrogators, exploitative press and self-styled "debunkers". Travis recounts the struggle to get a fair hearing, and confronts his detractors with a stinging rebuttal."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

April 2017 to May 12 2017.......this has been a read out loud book for my husband and I. It started out very interesting and believable, but then 1/2 way through became more of a "proof". He seems to start repeating himself over and over, and we are not sure if we will finish this to the end. The first part about the "incident" though was very good, and thought provoking as well. I see the movie is available on Youtube, (a nasty copy, but I'm not about to pay $100 or more to order a good copy!) and I'll give it a watch when I find some time. I think at the end of the book he talks about the making of the movie, but not sure if we will make it that far, maybe.....?.......May 24, just can't make ourselves read any more. We are moving on to another great Sid Marty book! (Men For The Mountains)
