9781496110138: Roswell USA: Towns That Celebrate UFOs, Lake Monsters, Bigfoot, and Other Weirdness

The year was 1997 and some 40,000 tourists and reporters descended upon the desert town of Roswell, New Mexico, where 50 years earlier a flying saucer is said to have crashed. Even today, UFOs and “Little Green Men” remain Roswell’s top tourist draw. This book takes a fresh new look at the Roswell Incident from an “insider’s perspective ” – that of lifelong Roswell resident John LeMay, a historian and author born and raised in the Alien Capital of the World. His childhood being filled with tales of flying saucers and alien autopsies, John grew up knowing several key Roswell eyewitnesses, including Robert Shirkey, who said he saw UFO debris being loaded onto a B-29 bomber at the Roswell Army Air Field in 1947. In the first part of this remarkable new book, John’s keen insight and marvelous sense of humor deliver a fresh new angle on the story of the Roswell UFO crash and on some of Roswell’s other, lesser-known mysteries, such as the “alien ghost” that haunts the former New Mexico Rehabilitation Center; the “Second” Roswell UFO Crash of 1949; Bottomless Lakes where cars sink into the depths and monsters emerge to the surface; and The Headless Horsewoman of Lover’s Lane, a Victorian Era Spook with an axe to grind against young lovers. Roswell is by no means the only town to use strange events and bizarre creatures to draw tourism dollars. Nor was it the first. In the second part of John’s book, he takes us on a tour of other towns all over the U.S. that celebrate weirdness – like Churubusco, Indiana, where a giant turtle transformed the town into “Turtletown, USA.” There is also Point Pleasant, West Virginia, where a moth-like humanoid has inspired an Annual Mothman Festival and a year-round Mothman Museum. Take a dip in the White River Monster Reservoir in Jacksonport, Arkansas, and visit an alien’s grave in Aurora, Texas. Cruise along the E.T. Highway near Rachel, Nevada, and have your picture taken with Bigfoot in Fouke, Arkansas.

From the Author :

This book is unabashedly inspired by one of my all time favorites: Loren Coleman's Mysterious America. So I think it's safe to say if you liked that book, you will like this one. And, you actually get three books in one to some degree. Part I offers a detailed history on various aspects of the Roswell UFO crash, from differing crash sites to surviving aliens and even a rarely discussed "second Roswell UFO crash" in 1949. Part II details strange stories from Roswell not connected to the UFO crash, such as strange creatures glimpsed in Bottomless Lakes, various ghosts and even a sighting of a "Colorado River Dinosaur" near the Berrendo River. Part III is where the book derives its title from, Roswell, USA. After the massive success of the 50th Anniversary of the Roswell Incident in 1997, I had always felt many other towns across America took note of Roswell's success in promoting such a strange event. For the most part I was right, many towns like Point Pleasant, WV, took note and began promoting things like Mothman, while a few other towns like Fouke, AR, actually predated Roswell as they were celebrating Bigfoot all the way back in the 1970s! So if you love UFOs, aliens, Bigfoot or Lake Monsters I sincerely hope you enjoy the book.

About the Author :

John LeMay is the author of numerous books on New Mexico and the Southwest, among them The Real Cowboys and Aliens: UFO Encounters of the Old West with Noe Torres, and Tall Tales and Half Truths of Billy the Kid for The History Press. In addition to books he also contributes articles to magazines such as Cinema Retro, Mad Scientist and Xenorama. He is a past president of the Historical Society for Southeastern New Mexico and lives in Roswell, NM.
