The Braxton County Monster: The Cover-Up of the Flatwoods Monster Revealed By Frank C. Feschino Jr.


characters The Braxton County Monster: The Cover-Up of the Flatwoods Monster Revealed

On the night of September 12, 1952, a shocked American public sought answers
when strange unidentified objects were seen flying through the sky over
Washington, DC and the eastern United States. Up and down the East Coast, police
stations, newspapers, airports, military bases and the Pentagon were besieged
with calls from frantic citizens. 

One of the strange objects crash-landed on a rural hilltop in Flatwoods, West
Virginia. A group of schoolboys saw the object maneuver across the sky and
seemingly fall to Earth. Was it a meteor, plane, or anything they could explain?
The boys and two adults headed off to look for the object.  Soon a
twelve-foot tall being from the downed craft terrified these innocent people.
This being became known as The Flatwoods Monster, or The Braxton County

Only hours before in Panama City, FL, several Air Force fighter jets took off
on a routine training mission. One of the F94 Starfire fighters vanished while
being tracked on Air Force radar. Search parties combed thousands of square
miles over the Gulf, but no trace of the men or their jet was ever found. The
airmen were proclaimed dead, and the military buried virtually all records of
both the men and the incident.

On September 13, Flatwoods residents were overwhelmed trying to comprehend
the strange events of the night before. Little did they know that elsewhere in
Braxton County, a young family was being terrorized. Stranded on a dark road, a
couple and their baby came face to face with a huge

The Flatwoods Monster incident and these other events all occurred in just
over a 24 hour period. They have never been fully explained, and worse, they
have been covered up. These UFO encounters have been hidden, ignored, and
discounted for more than fifty years. But now, author Frank Feschino reveals the
shocking truth about these events.

Feschino first heard about the Flatwoods Monster while visiting a cousin in
Braxton County, West Virginia. He was hooked. He dug a little deeper. Feschino
became known and trusted in Braxton County. The eyewitnesses to the event wanted
the truth to be told. They wanted to talk about the story for the first time in
fifty years. And they told their story to Frank. 

While Feschino researched The Braxton County Monster, he uncovered
information no one could have imagined. He traveled all over the country,
interviewing witnesses and poring over countless government documents, books and
old newspaper articles. The reward for all his work? Discovering the truth about
what many consider one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the twentieth

The Braxton County Monster: The Cover-Up of the Flatwoods Monster Revealed

The Braxton County Monster is one of the lesser known cryptids, but i think one of the most mysterious. I'm Team Brax, not Team Mothman.

Feschino's book provides detailed information on this baffling occurrence. Using primary resources and witness interviews, he outlines an astounding story of what caused the Creature to crash land in rural West Virginia, and.....what happened to the REST of the squadron!

My only complaint is that the author does a poor job of organizing the material into an understandable timeline. Each time he starts to outline the exact narrative of that evening, he detours into yet another list times, objects, and places. I felt like a two-page flow chart would have improved the book.

Frank C. Feschino Jr. The illustrations alone are worth cracking this book open. Some of the reporting is spooky as well. Frank C. Feschino Jr.
