Library Journal Review

YA-A guidebook written by a "group of scientists and researchers who claim to have worked at Area 51 [with a]...mission to research, identify, and promote awareness of sites around the U.S. of interest to the UFO community." It provides a nice balance of scholarship, skepticism, and wonder. States are listed alphabetically. Each site has an entry (the story) written in a light, humorous tone, explaining its place in UFO history, and giving a description or the best place for UFO watching in the area, directions on how to get there, a map, and a telephone number for more information. Most entries cite newspaper articles, books, or UFO organizations as sources. Directions to most locations are detailed, but most of the maps are general road maps of the area. Sidebars provide information on terminology, important people, organizations, and events in UFO history, as well as other curiosities. An introduction outlines the necessary equipment and procedures for gathering reliable and accurate information. The book covers all types of unexplained phenomena, but in a hip, campy style just right for teens-whether they believe in UFOs or not.-Jane Drabkin, Chinn Park Regional Library, Prince William, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
