By Jonathan Whitcomb
Because of so many responses from American eyewitnesses of apparent pterosaurs, by early 2009, I decided to write another book: "Live Pterosaurs in America." No reasonable objective person will reject all of these sighting reports as either misidentifications or hoaxes, not after examining each and every report. Nevertheless, few readers readily accept a revolutionary idea--extant pterosaurs--without reading more than they are normally inclined to read. So here is a summary of the book.
Introduction (excerpt from first paragraph):
"I know that this book could make a few Americans afraid to walk alone at night; I am sorry for that. But I'm glad to enlighten as many readers as possible to know about live-pterosaur investigations. Those who've been shocked at the sight of a flying creature that 'should' be extinct--those eyewitnesses, more numerous than most Americans would guess, need no longer be afraid that everyone will think them crazy."
Chapter One: South Carolina Sighting (excerpt from first paragraph):
"Susan Wooten was driving east on Highway 20, to the town of Florence . . . Where the road is surrounded by woods and swamps, Susan saw something flying from her left, then passing in front of her, behind her friend's car. . . . It looked as big as any car . . . NO feathers, not like a huge crane or egret, but like a humongous bat."
This nonfiction book should be available for ordering on Amazon.com, beginning around mid-July, 2009.
