For the first time ever, the eyewitness in one of the world's most intriguing and least known UFO cases speaks out in public and gives complete information never previously revealed about his terrifying encounter with aliens in a dark forest near Cisco Grove, California.
In the fall of 1964, an event much stranger than fiction took place in the ruggedly scenic foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the Tahoe National Forest. Into this remote wilderness stepped 26-year-old Donald Shrum, who planned to enjoy a relaxing weekend hunting deer with his bow and arrows. As he entered the forest, joking and laughing with his two hunting buddies, little did Shrum suspect that shortly he would be locked in the midst of a terrifying 12-hour struggle with alien forces.
Armed only with his wits and one of mankind's most primitive weapons, Shrum expended every ounce of his strength in an all-night battle against invaders that seemed bent on overtaking him and carrying him away to a fate worse than death. This is the story that the world has been waiting for decades to hear. Because he worked for a company that made missiles for the US military, the eyewitness never revealed his true identity in connection with his UFO encounter until now. This is the first and only fully authorized account ever written about this astonishing UFO incident. This UFO case was called "the most spectacular report we have examined" by Coral Lorenzen of the Aerial Phenomenon Investigation Committee (APRO). Paul Cerny of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) said, "There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this incident is factual and authentic. I have spent considerable time plus many visits with the main witness, and along with the testimony of the other witnesses, I can rule out any possibility of a hoax."
The telling of this incredible tale for the first time ever is with the full cooperation and permission of Mr. Donald R. Shrum, the primary eyewitness, and his family.
