"The famous 1961 Betty and Barney Hill abduction by non-humans is taken
apart, meticulously re-examined by Betty's niece and nuclear physicist Stanton
T. Friedman, and reinforced by the pressure of facts."
—Linda Moulton Howe, Emmy Award-winning TV producer, reporter, and editor,
"With the publication of this book, the skeptics' 'wiggle room' has shrunk to
zero. No longer can they get away with ignoring or minimizing the importance of
various details in order to claim they merely saw a light. Instead, the Hills' story
still stands as a strong reminder that we can't explain everything that
—from the Foreword by Dr. Bruce Maccabbee, author of Abduction In My Life
Today, 46 years after the UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, more and
more people are convinced that UFOs are real and their existence is being
covered up by the government. If you have doubts or questions about the Hill
case or alien bexperiences in general, "Captured!" will give you the
answers you’re searching for.
The 1961 abduction of the Hills stirred worldwide interest, primarily because of
the book The Interrupted Journey, the subsequent media coverage, and a 1975
TV movie, The UFO Incident. The case is mentioned in almost all UFO abduction
books. It also became a target for debunkers, who still attack it today.
But the complete story of what really happened that day, its effect on the
participants, and the findings of investigators has never been told...until now.
In Captured! you’ll get an insider’s look at the alien abduction, previously
unpublished information about the lives of the Hills before and after Barney’s
death in 1969, their status as celebrities, Betty’s experiences as a UFO
investigator, and other activities before her death in 2004. Kathleen Marden,
Betty Hill’s niece, shares details from her discussions with Betty and from the
evidence of the UFO abduction. She also looks at the Hills’ riveting hypnosis
sessions about their time onboard the spacecraft. The transcripts of these
sessions provide insight into the character of the aliens, including their
curiosity, their democratic discussions, and their desire to avoid inflicting pain.
In addition, co-author, physicist, and ufologist Stanton T. Friedman, the original
civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident, reviews and refutes the arguments
of those who have attacked the Hill case, including the star map Betty Hill saw
inside the craft and later recreated.
Stanton T. Friedman, a nuclear physicist with BS and MS degrees from the
University of Chicago, is the best-known scientific ufologist in North America
and probably the world. He has worked on classified fission and fusion nuclear
propulsion systems for space exploration for companies such as General
Electric. As a ufologist, he has lectured at more than 600 colleges in 50 states, 9
provinces, and 18 countries. He is co-author of the Roswell book, Crash at
Corona, and the author of Top Secret/Majic. He has appeared on numerous TV
documentaries including The History Channel and Sci-Fi Channel and hundreds
of radio and TV programs. He lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
Educator and sociologist Kathleen Marden is Betty Hill’s niece and trustee of her
estate. She has all of Hill’s papers and correspondence, and has transcribed the
tapes of the Hills’ hypnosis sessions with psychiatrist Dr. Benjamin Simon.
Marden has also met with the numerous scientists who investigated the case.
For the past 10 years, she has served on the Board of Directors of the Mutual
UFO Network, the largest International UFO organization and as director of Field
Investigator Training for MUFON. Marden lives in Stratham, New Hampshire.
