For more than fifty years, the bizarre events at a remote Utah ranch have ranged from the perplexing to the wholly terrifying. Vanishing and mutilated cattle. Unidentified Flying Objects. The appearance of huge, otherworldly creatures. Invisible objects emitting magnetic fields with the power to spark a cattle stampede. Flying orbs of light with dazzling maneuverability and lethal consequences. For one family, life on the Skinwalker Ranch had become a life under siege by an unknown enemy or enemies. Nothing else could explain the horrors that surrounded them -- perhaps science could.

Leading a first-class team of research scientists on a disturbing odyssey into the unknown, 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 in superb detail 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 utterly hair-raising in their implications. Opening a door to the unseen world around us, Hunt for the Skinwalker is a clarion call to expand our vision far beyond what we know.

"Hunt for the Skinwalker is a well told and true account of the amazing strangeness discovered by a scientific team doing investigations for the National Institute of Discovery Science. Reading this account was like hearing, word for word, for the second time the reports of the field investigators." -- Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D. Astronaut, NIDS SAC

"Few books have ever disturbed our view of reality as much as John Keel's The Mothman Prophecies; that is until we finished Colm Kelleher and George Knapp’s Hunt for the Skinwalker. This is one very disturbing is also will open your mind to the almost infinite possibilities of what awaits the human race.” -- Don and Vicki Ecker, UFO Magazine
