In the early morning hours of March 28, 2011, Charles and Helene Fontaine experienced something that shattered their beliefs about the nature of reality.
One evening in 1981, Connie J Cannon was on I-75 with her young son, en route to their new home in Florida, when they suddenly found themselves on a military base, with a man in uniform holding a gun to her head as three Grays stood nearby.
In 1979, Diane Fine was on her way from upstate New York to Vermont to see an obstetrics specialist for her high risk pregnancy, and experienced two hours of missing time. When she was finally examined at the clinic, she was told wasn't pregnant.
In 1970, pilot Bruce Gernon was chased by something through the Bermuda Triangle and he has been talking about it ever since - to UFO Hunters, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, the Sci-Fi channel, and all their foreign counterparts.
These individuals have never met. But they share something significant. In 2003, a Roper Organization survey revealed that 33 million Americans may be abductees. Aliens in the Backyard is their story.

There are a million UFO books out there. Almost all are passionate and come from the author's heart. But, they can be poorly written.
This one is very nicely organized and well presented. There authors cover a lot of the divergent aspects of the abduction lore. At the same time there is a personal story interwoven within the overall narrative.
Calm, slow and thoughtful.
I was fascinated by the description of this book, and once I started listening, the fascination continued. Rob and Trish MacGregor have written an excellent account of their exploration of alien encounters and alien abduction. Partly because there is little to no obvious judgment on their part on whether the encounters actually happened, I was able to reserve judgment and just listen to what they had discovered. They have an excellent ability to simply describe the events and let the reader decide for themselves what has really happened. I started the book feeling fairly skeptical, for although I absolutely admit to the probability of “otherness”, I have not had much contact with or done much research into this subject, and skeptical is usually where I start. By the end of the book, however, the descriptions of encounters by varied individuals and couples had me shaking my head and wondering … could it really be? The descriptions were clear and pulled me right along, and it was amazing how much commonality could be found between them. And synchronicity – how did I miss this word all my life? I had to go look up the definition, and then I was shouting “YES!” because I have felt the synchronicity in the world so many times without knowing what to call it. I learned quite a bit from this book, and consider it well worth the read for anyone wishing to know something about the subject without a “hard sell” approach. I thought the narrator, Kevin Pierce, was excellent for this type of book. His style was calm, clear, low key, and fairly slow, which worked very well for this subject matter. I probably wouldn't have enjoyed that type of delivery for a suspense novel, but for this one I thought it was perfect. The book translated quite well to audio, except for one complaint. I occasionally became confused as to who was speaking, the narrator or the person having the experience. I liked the style of writing with a main narrator throughout and various people’s experiences interwoven into the story, but a few more “he said,” or “she said” would have been helpful for the audio version. (I never thought I would say that!) But it was a minor complaint in the overall reading of an excellent book by a very appropriate narrator.
This books was really good, the narrator was soothing.
It was the perfect contrast of spooky scenes with truth and explanation behind them.
If you don't believe in aliens you will now.....
Fascinating, revealing and honest.
Without writing a spoiler, using a psychic, asking why the abduction took place and hearing, "For Entertainment". Not so hard to believe. We're not dealing with good here, it's way past "Take me to your leader". More like realizing there are really bad things going on and some of them are for no purpose, others tie into the Shadow government that are so much the hidden hand. If you see one of these things, RUN, don't walk into the light and get the hell out.
No and he was slowly read, not in a bad way. It was paced well. Hi did a good job and I enjoyed it.
We are defiantly prey and not predator here.
Its refreshing not to relive 1947 Roswell or so many "Boriong" Nuts and bolts stories about crafts and the objects. This deals with an examination of what and who are inside those things, but what they are doing to us and asks the question, why. Several cases are presented and many clearly written accounts where your in their shoes. What would you do? It can't bring it home better. Well done and very interesting
This was an interesting book. I have some issues with the psychic stuff towards the end. Over all, an interesting book
Uh, it fits nicely between John Keel's books and Whitley Strieber's books--both authors you should be reading or listening to if you enjoy this book. I'd say this book is an excellent supplement to those two main meals.
There was no one singular moment that stood out for me. What I liked is that the stories, the strangeness, the frightening aspects--they all seemed to keep coming. This book relates a bunch of stories and presents a lot of information.
Definitely worth re-listening to. Which I love. Gives you your money's worth.
I hate character performances. But Pierce narrated this book well. Frankly, if the narrator sucks, the entire audiobook might as well be flushed. Pierce is a good reader. Pleasant to listen to. Easy to understand.
I knew a lot of this already, but the hybrid babies are still weird to me. What the hell do they want us to think about these little monstrosities? And--assuming they are real--what are they specifically? Genetic combos? Manifested spirit beings? Justin Bieber love children?
Anal probes. Shaken. Not stirred.
Well, this book is a lot more enjoyable to listen to than I thought it would be. The cover art is corny, but the book is well-written, organized, and interesting. Yes, some of the details may strain your ability to believe, but they are entertaining and frightening nonetheless.
BUY THIS BOOK. It may teach you to avoid those lights.
Already have... I like reading about ufo's
Communion by Whitley Strieber
The lights in Charles back yard.
The hybrid babies.
I enjoyed the book!
This book rambles on... it's impossible to tell characters apart... After the first chapter, I realized I was dreading returning to the story... I deleted it.... then audible wouldn't let me exchange it *sigh* again, don't waste your money
It is turning me off audible books, yes
He could only work with what he had
I would delete the entire, rambling book
"Factual and interesting read"
The scope of recollections from the people involved. This is a very well written, educational book giving factual accounts from credible people. In my opinion, a great read for believers and sceptics alike.
The variety of information put forward.
Kevin Pierce narrates without giving any sense of his own thoughts on what he is narrating. I really like his style!
Absolutely. Though at 7 hours in length I had to spread it out over an evening and the following morning.
There's a lot of info here, and it's definitely worth listening to more than once
Made me think
The description of the main abduction sequence - bizarre!
it was OK
Everything is not what it seems
