Review Text

That inveterate collector (Strange People; Stranger Than Science) with more snack-sized accounts of intellectually indigestible experiences: miraculous cures and survivals; a plague of dying birds or gray mold or crabs and snails; ghost lights and fireballs; abominable snowmen and other monsters - apes in Oregon, a dragon on a beach; dreams; disappearances; and Unidentified Flying Objects all over the place (Barry Goldwater says they're real). There are more than 100 diverse phenomena assembled. The handling is prosaic, but the content is for the Ripley Believe-It-Or-Not following who will read it with openminded, openmouthed amazement.
