"This book might make a few Americans uneasy to walk alone at night; my in-
tention, however, is not to frighten but 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, and no longer need they feel alone. Those of us who’ve listened to the American eyewit-nesses, we who have
interviewed them, we now believe. So, if you will, consider the experiences of these ordinary persons (I’ve interviewed most of them
myself) and accept whatever enlighten-ment you may."

"On Umboi Island, I led the first of the two expeditions of 2004, with two other American cryptozoologists following a few weeks later.
Six native eyewitnesses (among many) we interviewed with amazing results: Three men saw, at Lake Pung, a giant featherless long-tailed
flying creature in daylight; three other men saw similar large-to-giant creatures but glowing at night or at twilight.
"During those years of expeditions in the Southwest Pacific, reports in our own country became impossible to ignore; I received many
emails . . . long tails (often) and apparent [glow] bioluminescence (sometimes). We began to believe."
