This incredible video documentary takes you to the legendary and enigmatic “Bimini Road” of the Bahamas, as well as other equally anomalous, previously unknown underwater sites and stone formations in the region. It explores the psychic reading of the “Sleeping Prophet” Edgar Cayce who had predicted back in 1940 that a portion of Atlantis would be found in 1968 and 1969 near the island of Bimini. Certainly the 1600-foot long “Bimini Road” fits quite remarkably into Cayce’s prediction.
With dramatic and entertaining recreations from Edgar Cayce’s life and readings, and with revealing video clips from the numerous expeditions that Greg and Lora have led to the Bahamas over the years, this documentary demolishes the claims of skeptics that the famous Bimini formation is simply a natural stone formation. Though they found logical and rational explanations for most underwater sites, many being coral reef formations, Greg and Lora found other underwater stone sites that so far have defied being explained as natural formations. Instead, indications are very strong, and in many instances it is quite clear that the stones at these sites had been worked, placed and propped at their present locations (but at a time thousands of years ago when the ocean was much lower) and fit together to create ancient harbors (similar to many such ancient harbors found in the Mediterranean). As with the Mediterranean harbors, man-made stone anchors turned up at Bimini Road!
In addition, in expeditions on the Great Bahama Bank, the Little team even came upon the wreckage of several crashed planes, some of which had become part of the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.
A great deal of astounding information and breathtaking scenes are packed into this 51 minute, high-quality video presentation. You’ll be glued to your seat from beginning to end. Order it today!

Dennis Baker, author of Ghosts of Colorado, takes you on a tour of haunted locations throughout Colorado. Each story has a great introduction, with photographs and details of fascinating accounts of people’s experiences into the unknown (i.e., unexplained apparitions, UFO sightings, haunted homes, hotels, and cemeteries). You will enjoy each story!
The cover is one of the most haunted landscapes in the United States. Walk the halls of the chilling Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, a place that gave Stephen King the creeps. King stayed at the Stanley while writing the original book which inspired the movie, “The Shining,” one of my favorite scary movies. He apparently hid away for five months in room 217, where he fashioned the story which even included the very room he was staying in. You will enjoy the story of room 401, hot spot of ghost activity at the Stanley Hotel. Guests hear strange noises there and the sounds of like children playing at night.
Colorado Alien Encounters was another one of my favorite parts of the book. It describes a horse named Snippy who, in 1967, died under mysterious (UFO related?) circumstances on a ranch in Alamosa. The story made headlines all over the world.
In 1948, I had my own experience with a UFO at age 4, in Sanford, Colorado, also a part of the San Luis Valley, not far from Alamosa. I was at the age where everything unknown to me was the devil! I was raised Catholic. Unknown encounters were part of the demon world. It left me with many questions. Who was the little man standing below the spaceship? My explanation to my family was that I had seen the devil with his eyes rolled back!

Nancy is a noted psychic who gives readings, is an intuitive life coach, and a popular radio host with two programs dealing with the metaphysical. Ever since a head injury at age six, in which she briefly went out of her body, she has heard what she calls “my angel voice,” a very warm, comforting, and gentle inner voice. After this is when her psychic abilities began to appear. Still at age 6, Nancy suddenly knew during a visit from her paternal grandmother that this person was going to die soon. Again her “angel voice” communicated with her and told her, “Nancy, she is going to go home, where she really wants to be, and that is a nice place. It is the way it is supposed to be.” Nancy feels that from that moment on she never had a fear of death. A month later, her grandmother passed away, taking the family by complete surprise, as she had appeared to everyone else as being in good health. She found that she knew what was happening with people, though as a child she felt frustrated and unable to help, though the gentle, soothing voice would tell her that one day she would. It wasn’t yet that time. “Then, as now, whenever the angel spoke to me, I felt as though I was receiving love in every cell and nerve in my body,” she wrote. “Even in the hard times, when I was told not to do anything, the voice made me feel completely safe and centered, and it dried all my tears of frustration.” Nancy also could see auras around people (though back then she didn’t understand what that was about either) and she also could connect with and read animals.
At age 12, Nancy had her first “vision,” a profound, kind of lucid daydream like state in which she perceived world events of the future, from 2010 to 2050. She saw many volcanoes erupting simultaneously, many earthquakes occurring also worldwide, as well as powerful tornadoes. She saw an image of the United States, where a number of states were gone, and in their place was water. Wars were also raging around the world and no one knew what to do or where to go for safety. Nancy found herself crying and shaking from the overwhelming vision when that familiar and warm “angel voice” communicated: “Nancy, just before 2010, people will start to go through some changes. Many people will feel the need to be in charge. You and people like you will do the best that they can, however, be aware now, and be prepared, there is a new generation of advanced children coming, and they will be there at that time, who will put this world back together if this earth and its people are to make it. Don’t be afraid. You will help as much as you can, but it is really not in your hands. The human race thinks we have progressed, but in reality they have de-progressed.”
Again and again, this inner guidance proved itself to be trustworthy and dependable. In fact, if back during her sophomore year of high school she hadn’t suddenly had a precognitive flash and her angelic guidance while riding with her brother Donny then several people would have died in a serious car accident.
This is only a glimpse of the beginning of Nancy’s incredible and fascinating life journey. Complete with many wonderful psychic and spiritual experiences, and lots of great family stories and photographs, you’ll enjoy this book. In places you will laugh and in others you may cry, but you won’t be sorry that you took the time to read Nancy’s stories and to reflect on her life experiences and lessons and see how they may apply to your own journey through this life.
The Roswell Legacy: The Untold Story of the First Military Officer at the 1947 Crash Site

Here is the story of Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer for the 509th Bomb Group and the first military officer to arrive on the scene of the famous Roswell UFO crash of 1947. This remarkable story is reconstructed by his son, Jesse Marcel, Jr., M.D., himself now a medical doctor who has served much time in the U.S. military, and his wife Linda, a semi-retired nurse. Besides reconstructing the true details of what happened to Major and father Jesse Marcel, and his own memories of what he had heard and seen back then, the authors also describe how family dealt with the public and social repercussions brought about because of this one man’s famous and controversial story. “Just as any parent, I’ve regretted the discomfort, the fear, and the embarrassment that my father’s and my experiences have caused for my family,” Jesse Marcel, Jr., wrote. “Even now, the specter of Roswell is creating rifts in our family, causing me no end of despair.”
On the other hand, however, this proud and loyal son cannot shake the memory of the wonder in his father’s eyes as he recalled the Roswell story, his own memory as a young boy of handling the Roswell debris that his father had brought home late one night in a box, and it is at this point that he realizes that despite all of the challenges and inconveniences that July day six decades ago brought into the lives of his parents, his wife and children and himself, the implications of that event are far more important. “That night offered humanity a rare opportunity to look beyond its petty squabbles, and even beyond the boundaries of this tiny planet on which we live,” he wrote. “It gave us a glimpse of a greater universe, and the chance to make the most of our place in it.”
Though Marcel Jr. writes that he was not attempting to write “the be-all and end-all work” dealing with the search for extraterrestrial life, the field of space technology, or even to present the final analysis on the controversial Roswell saga, his chapter “Life in the Cosmos: Beyond Roswell” is a pretty decent review and summary of the best and available evidence and information related to this subject matter. He touches upon a new theory of faster than light space travel called Alcubierre space drive, named after a Mexican physicist named Miguel Alcubierre. He describes another theory and technology being researched by NASA which is a plasma-based propulsion system called VASIMR (Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket). Another involves a propulsion system that taps into so-called zero-point energy field. He also touches upon the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program and even accounts from centuries ago that sound very much like our modern UFO reports, including the Biblical account of Ezekiel’s “wheel.” Marcel, Jr. admits to having himself exhaustively researched quantum theory, ufology, and the geology and physics of our planet, even admitting that he had built his own seismograph once.
This book also contains an assortment of old photographs and copies of official documents. A worthwhile addition to the bookshelf of every student of ufology.
