Read Close Encounters of the Old West by Logan Hawkes-fReado
The Story Behind This Book
Reports of strange lights in the skies and possible unidentified flyhing objects are rampant in modern times. But a large majority of these sightings can be explained as misidentifications, such as aircraft or weather balloons or satellites. But after a great deal of research, I was amazed to find a large number of published newspaper reports from the 1800s about the very same thing we are experiencing today, but those reports were more credible considering there were no aircraft in those days to confuse the viewer.
After serving as a guest on a History Channel program about the subject, my research became an obsession, and this book is a spin off of that research. Much of the research led me to uncover a great deal of information about Native American myth and legends as well, and I discovered the two may well be related.
This inspired me to develop a fun action novel that highlights both the documented sightings and explores the legends and lores of the First Americans.
