The state of West Virginia has a long prominent history of unexplained happenings and bizarre sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Perhaps it's because we are a rural state geographically covered with harsh mountains and rolling hills, being far from more densely populated territories that makes this phenomena even more fantastic. Maybe the people here are just more observant of such oddities, or more willing to report such experiences to authorities. Then again, it could be that the Mountain State is in somewhat close proximity to the nation's capitol, Washington, DC, or to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, in Dayton, Ohio, that makes such sightings probable. Regardless of the reasons for the increased activity in Appalachia, it remains a fact that citizens of the state have recorded an astounding number of UFO sightings over the last fifty years. Among these have been high profile incidents such as the famed Braxton County Monster occurrence where a crippled unidentified object and creature may have come near the community of Flatwoods. Additionally, the legendary Mothman sightings, near Point Pleasant, still mystify investigators and enthusiasts. There were the infamous Men in Black investigators that have garnered international attention to the territory. Hundreds of lesser-known cases exist where solid citizens of upright character claimed to have witnessed strange flying objects over the state s airspace. Many sightings have been reported to county law enforcement or to federal investigative agencies, often with lackluster results. However, it s likely that an even greater percentage of eyewitnesses have kept their experiences secret to avoid public ridicule or harassment from non-believers. To this day, the whole UFO situation is often viewed as an erroneous and suspect enigma. Of course, the author Kyle Lovern tends to see things differently, and so do millions of others like him. This literary work documents sixteen new UFO sightings in Appalachia interviews with West Virginia citizens that have experienced the unexplained. Also, Lovern includes an exclusive interview with nationally respected ufologist and nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman.

Review:

West Virginia prides itself as a land of majestic mountains, sparkling streams, coal to feed hungry power plants, a unique place in American history and a fiercely independent people accustomed to overcoming hard times with a resiliency unrivaled by anyone else. Now add another chapter to the 35th state s storied history more documented UFO activity than any other place in America. Even eclipsing Roswell. --Mannix Porterfield, Beckley Register-Herald; from article "WV almost a UFO heaven?"

This is a fascinating book that offers readers sixteen UFO accounts from common, everyday citizens from West Virginia. All sightings are compelling, exciting and bizarre. This is a must read for UFO enthusiasts and those looking for eerie stories. --Allen Clayton, Book Critic
