Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monsters, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs, and Ape-Men

Ufologist Redfern (Cosmic Crashes, etc.) and two paranormally inclined pals, Jonathon Downes and Richard Freeman, take the reader for a rollicking, often alcohol-infused ride in a camper during the summer of 2001,""chasing monsters around the British countryside."" Redfern dredges up a number of secondhand, sometimes centuries-old accounts of""de-evolved"" humans and other odd creatures, even once citing Daniel Defoe, an author well known for his tendency to mix fact and fiction, on the existence of wild men in the West Country. At one point Redfern remarks,""Jon was unsure of the cause of all this mystery and mayhem, but speculated that some form of ethereal, superior intelligence coexisted with us--and had done so for millennia--and that, for reasons of its own, was constantly manipulating and molding the human mind with images of bizarre and unexplained phenomena."" Some may feel that's as good an explanation as any for the elusive beings they investigate. At the end of their quest, Redfern and his colleagues weren't disappointed--nor will like-minded readers be after finishing this cheerful excursion into the occult fringe.
