About the Book

Fire in the SkyOn november 5, 1975, a group of loggers in the mountans 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, disorented 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.

Now, the real story behind the hit movie from Paramount — a detailed expose of the campaign to suppress Walton's story, and first-time revelations of startling new developments.   396 pp.

ANNOUNCEMENT! During the years FIRE IN THE SKY was out of print I had almost daily inquiries from people all over the world wanting to know where they could find a copy. I promised to let everyone know when my book became available. Most realize that Hollywood did not stick with the real story. They want to get the book to find out the details of what really happened. But people were selling their used copies online for outrageous amounts -- up to $200 to $300.

So I finally finished printing a newly updated edition. It has revisions and additional illustrations and 25 more pages of material. It is a 6x9 softcover of 396 pages, using a higher quality whiter paper and a clearer font and format. For now it's only available here, or in person.

The price is $30 plus $5.95 shipping and handling for U.S. orders. On U.S. orders of more than one book, the shipping and handling is FREE on the second book. In other words, shipping for a two book order is still only $5.95. Shipping and handling is $15 for Canada & Mexico, $20 for Europe & Australia.
