Publisher's Summary

For more than 50 years, bizarre events at a remote Utah ranch have ranged from the perplexing to the wholly terrifying: vanishing and mutilated cattle, huge otherworldly creatures, invisible objects emitting magnetic fields, and more. For the family living at Skinwalker Ranch, life was under siege, and no one had been able to explain the horrors that surrounded them...But maybe science could. Leading a first-class team of research scientists, Colm Kelleher spent hundreds of days and nights on the Skinwalker property and experienced firsthand many of its haunting mysteries.

With investigative reporter George Knapp - the only journalist allowed to witness and document the team's work - Kelleher chronicles the spectacular happenings the team observed personally and the theories of modern physics behind the phenomena. Far from the coldly detached findings one might expect, their conclusions are a clarion call to expand our vision far beyond what we know.

Buy this! No BS!

Well written, well performed, well worth the money. This genre needs to take some direction from this audio book.

Mesermizing tale of the supernatural.

Would you consider the audio edition of Hunt for the Skinwalker to be better than the print version?

There is a bit of repetition in both the written book and the audio version, itself, due to the writer's insistence on backing up his observations and insights as though this book had been written more for skeptics than those more willing to accept the mysterious, haunting, and bizarre nature of the phenomena involved in this intriguing said-to-be real-life tale.

What did you like best about this story?

The subject matter is truly fascinating, especially for those who have been intrigued by the legends of Skinwalkers and the strange rumors about the Skinwalker Ranch itself. The book proposes that, perhaps, all paranormal phenomena might, in fact, be related to some degree, which is a fresh and intriguing approach in and of itself.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

David Bendena has a soft-spoken approach to the material that sometimes helps enhance the suspense of the book by drawing the listener to concentrate closer to what is being unveiled in certain scenes. At other times, this soft-spoken approach seems overdone, especially in regards to when the book is exploring history or various theories that are intent to try to help explain what was observed at the Ranch.

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

I was totally intrigued by the information regarding the fact that some of the "Buffalo Soldiers" were not only stationed in the area, but had both Masonic and Occult ties. This book also does a nice job of adding various tidbits of information about the phenomena of the Skinwalker myth itself and similarities between the phenomena at Skinwalker Ranch and that which has been reportedly observed at Dulce, New Mexico.

Any additional comments?

The book seems to be trying too hard to convince skeptics of what is going on at Skinwalker Ranch. It also spends too much time laying out various possible theories, though some of what is laid out is not only important to understand what the scientists themselves are attempting to prove, but just downright interesting in and of themselves. This audio book was a great find, but leaves me wanting much more on the subject.

Thought provoking

No matter what you believe, it’s always good to keep thinking and evaluating knowns and unknowns. Take what you have learned and
Research for yourself the information provided and decide for your
Self. The book is thought provoking and I have enjoy it quiet a bit.
I probably have listened four times in the last two months.

Proof That You Get What You Pay For

A family moves to a ranch that was bargain priced, apparently without doing any research on the property, and get every experience in the book of weird. Many possible explanations are proposed from aliens to witchcraft to alternate dimensions. Meanwhile the intrepid family continues to carry on as if nothing is wrong, completely surprised by each occurence of the increasingly strange variety.
If they'd talked to the neighbors or local Native Americans they might have reconsidered their purchase and avoided all the macabre goings on.
Enter the research reporter and team of scientists who decide not to release any of their findings and decline to be named.
Purely as entertainment this is an interesting read, reminding me of the investigations written about in the 70s by author Jess Stern.

Great book

I’ve listened to this audio twice. I missed stuff from the first time I listened to it. I think I missed stuff because I was really into the story being told. Great the first time and just as great the second. Definitely recommend this book.

Phenomenal

Probably one of the most compelling stories I've ever heard. If you're into the work of John Keel, Dr Barry Taff, Dr Michael Persinger, Dr Rick Straussman, Dr Dean Radin, Ingo Swan, David Morehouse, Joseph McMoneagle, Lyn Buchanan, The books by Robert A. Monroe, particularly his latter two as well as the work of Terrence Mckenna, John C. Lilly- Don't bother to hesitate. This will help you to tie many things together. If you haven't, there's your reading list.
