"I...was most impressed by the Betty and Barney Hill case when it was first introduced in the 1960's (The Interrupted Journey).This was the first so-called "abduction" case. There were many things in that report that convinced me that the Hills had a true experience. For example the apparent telepathic communication and the non-hostile intent of the aliens , seemed to me perfectly plausible".

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

This book is a classic for ufologists, being the first popular researched account of what has become to be known as the alien abduction phenomenon. Fuller, a journalist already known for some work on UFO sightings, covers the story on several levels. The first is what the Hills immediately recalled of their automobile trip, a remembrance with two unaccountable hours and some other oddities, including vague, but increasing anxiety. This led them to individual counselling, their independent sessio ...more
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.
