Book Review: Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook by Stan Gordon

Today, I finished Stan Gordon's book Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot Casebook. The book came out in 2010 and is about the flap of Bigfoot and UFO sightings in Pennsylvania in 1973 and 1974.

Silent Invasion: The Pennsylvania UFO-Bigfoot

For those who don't know, a "flap" is a period of time (it can be a few weeks, months, or even a few years) when something strange(examples: UFOs and Bigfoot) is seen quite a lot in a certain area. Other examples of flaps include the MoMo in Missouri and the Jersey Devil.

Back to Silent Invasion, though. In 1973 and '74 there were tons of Bigfoot and UFO sightings all over Pennsylvania. Sometimes there would be many sightings in just one day! Some sightings were very strange: Bigfoot and UFOs seen at the same time and place, a white Bigfoot holding a glwoing orb(and a UFO sighting later), Bigfoots disappearing after they were shot at close range, and even one sighting involved a Bigfoot - but only from the waist up!

Stan had a research group at the time called the WCUFOSG and they investigated many of the sightings at the time. Some other things that happened include paranormal activity and Men in Black encounters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in Bigfoot or UFOs.
