As a book about the paranormal, "Skinwalker & Beyond" is a fairly unique piece of work. Unlike legions of other publications on the subject, Burns does not simply parrot anomalous reports that he has heard from others. He has gone into the field and has seen the unexplained for himself. There is no shortage of head-scratchers between the covers, and anyone who is interested in Ufology, cryptozoology or parapsychology should certainly look into obtaining this book. The author's home, the Uintah Basin in Utah, is reported to have glowing balls of light, time distortions, strange creatures and government secrets all on the menu (if you know where to look). As suggested by the title, the Native American concept of the "skinwalker" is discussed in detail.

Although an engaging read and a valuable resource for enthusiasts, "Skinwalker & Beyond" also has a fairly large number of grammatical errors in it which can prove to be distracting at times. As usual for this topic, the photographs presented are often blurry and indistinct as well. Nevertheless, anyone who has enjoyed "The Hunt for the Skinwalker" by Colm A. Kelleher and George Knapp, or is simply captivated by the legend of the "Skinwalker Ranch", should not pass up the opportunity to purchase this book.< Less
