The Van Meter Visitor

With eye witness reports historic photos and current accounts of the paranormal this in depth book looks to discover what really happened in the town of Van Met Thanks in large part to horror films and cable reality paranormal shows the immense amount of time and effort legitimate paranormal investigators spend in libraries and historical societies chasing down leads is largely ignored Most people are only interested in the sexy aspects of the haunting or cryptid visitation who got chased frightened possessed or injured What dark menace is lurking in the corner Are there jump scares as the investigators walk insane asylum hallways in the green glow of night vision technology Viewers don t realize that paranormal investigators are in large part journalists and historians tracking down the history that provides the context for the paranormal phenomena at play One of the world s best known paranormal investigators was John Keel of Mothman fame He was also a journalist So was his counterpart in the film The Mothman Prophecies It is the journalist s instincts for finding the hidden facts buried beneath or adjacent to the known ones that drive the good paranormal investigator Christopher O Brien s Stalking the Herd about cattle mutilations is a thick exhaustive testament to the value of mining newspaper clippings police reports and other firsthand accountsMy forthcoming book Watch Out for the Hallway Our Two Year Investigation of the Most Haunted Library in North Carolina co authored with my wife Tonya a talented medium owes as much to dozens of hours of research as it does to the 150 plus hours we spent investigating the library itself There were plenty of dead ends but also corroborations and finds in the form of documents and photographs that made all the hours worth it illuminating the messages we heard and physical phenomena we experiencedSo I can appreciate the work that the three authors of The Van Meter Visitor put into this volume I am taking my time with this aspect of the book because there are a surprising number of negative reviews of the book that sadly confuse indispensible research with filler of some kind I hope this review serves in part to undo some of this mistaken criticismLewis Voss and Nelson all of whom have impressive resum s in the field as evidenced by the About the Authors section situate a limited sighting of winged horned cryptids over several nights in the small town of Van Meter Iowa in 1903 in a series of expanding circles of interest As one would expect they begin by laying out the history of Van Meter as well as all of the major players the town s business owners and other prominent citizens who encountered the creatures In this first section appropriately titled History they relate the story which is fascinating reading recalling similar winged cryptids like the Mothman but with its own uniue twists This section is authored almost entirely by LewisThe second section Theories is as strong as it is because the authors took the time to provide plenty of historical geographical economic and human context We already feel 40 pages in that we know and trust both the people of Van Meter and the authors themselves In the Theories section the three authors look at a variety of possible explanations including a primer on cryptids featuring several similar cases such as the Jersey Devil another on large birds of prey the UFOAlien connection that is prevalent in many cryptid sightings such as of Mothman Bigfoot and Skinwalkers thunderbirds and thoughtforms the latter of which is currently of great interest because of the Slenderman phenomena and ultraterrestrial theories a standout survey chapter that runs 30 plus pages the section on uantum physics and the holographic universe demonstrates that the authors are using all of our modern tools in their work The three authors all contribute chapters to the closing section Final Thoughts Their summations responsibly explore a number of possible explanations and there are no firm statements made about what the citizens of Van Meter encountered 115 years ago Their theories all connect back to the information from the previous two sectionsOverall The Van Meter Visitor serves a dual purpose as a primer about the Van Meter mystery that allows the reader to pick up where the authors left off in their investigation armed with abundant historical sociological and cryptological context the two appendices offer a list of businesses operating in Van Meter in 1903 and an array of local and national newspaper accounts of the incident and also as a handbook on the components and countless hours that go into a thorough paranormal investigationAs if these two aspects were not enough an extra bonus is the Foreword by the recently deceased author of over 80 books on the paranormal and spirituality Brad Steiger The book also features abundant historical photographs of the people and places in Van Meter many provided with help from the local library which help to close the century plus time gap for the reader The Van Meter Visitor is a textbook example of how to do a thorough investigation written by seasoned passionate professionals who bring to light a fascinating cryptid that has not yet gotten its fair share of attention and consideration It should be a part of any investigator s or enthusiast s

    A very intriguing befuddling and mind bending read The authors' approach in attempting to unravel this century old mystery was thorough and professional start to finish Each writer maintained his own particular narrative but all were well articulated and objective Some of the best modern day paranormal investigators I've come across in a while Still the mystery stands However with exhaustive paranormal references list
