I read this book when I was about 11 years old, and it scared the crap out of me, especially the sketches of the aliens. This is a classic must read book for ufologists and one of the few that I actually believe.
The Betty and Barney Hill case is truly the mother of all alien abduction stories; not only was it the first complete account of alien abduction, it remains one of the most well-documented cases on record. The Hills were not publicity seekers (as an interracial couple in 1964, the last thing they needed was more attention), and the medical psychiatrist who eventually hypnotized them had no interest in ufology whatsoever - in fact, Dr. Simon Hill maintained strict editorial control over the conte ...more

The Interrupted Journey: 12132005 Two Lost Hours "Aboard a Flying Saucer" John G. Fuller
An investigative report in book form about the now famous sighting of Betty and Bob Hill, who purportedly were taken aboard a "flying saucer". As most people today know, Betty was able to reproduce a star map that was exceptionally close to fitting the galaxy from a specific point of view. This was the first abduction on record if I remember right, and the book emphasizes the ordeal they went through afterward.
It was creepy and having driven those roads I can relate to how they must have felt (assuming it's all true). The downside of the book is that it is very repetitive so feel free to skip ahead.
my book was published in 1966. picked it up at a library sale. interesting read about what exactly happened to Betty and Barney Hill
