“In Search of…” is an American TV series (broadcast weekly from 1977 to 1982) devoted to Mysterious Phenomena. It was created after the success of three one-hour TV documentaries: “In Search of Ancient Astronauts” in 1973 (based on the book Chariots of the Gods? by Erich von Däniken), “In Search of Ancient Mysteries” and “The Outer Space Connection” (both in 1975). It was recently revived in 2018 with host Zachary Quinto, currently airing on the History Channel.
The program travels the world, seeking out … Mysterious Historical Events, Myths and Monsters, The Paranormal, Strange Visitors, The Outer Space Connection, Lost Civilizations, and More — narrated by Leonard Nimoy.
We invite you now to explore Great MYSTERIES … through Native American, Asian and African MYTHOLOGY in … THE SURVIVAL TRILOGY.
A GLEAM OF LIGHT
Book 1 explores NATIVE AMERICAN Mythology in Hopiland. The Hopi live in Arizona (an area known as Four Corners, where the state lines of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet). It is the “heart” of Turtle Island (the U.S.) and of Mother Earth. GLEAM draws inspiration from Hopi Mythology, in its concept of Guardianship given by the “Great Spirit” to each of four human races: red, yellow, black, and white.
MYSTERIOUS HISTORICAL EVENTS
“In Search of…” explores Mysterious Events like “The Lost Colony of Roanoke” in 1590, the “Siberian Fireball” of 1908 that flattened about 80 million trees and the disapperance of famed aviator “Amelia Earhart” in 1937 over the Pacific Ocean.
A GLEAM OF LIGHT begins with a Documented Historical Event: May 25, 1995 — America West Flight 564 from Florida to Las Vegas. Around 9:20 p.m. a flight officer noticed strange lights nearby. The crew witnessed a “row of bright white lights” seemingly part of a solid object. The captain described it this way: “…There is a strobe on it and it starts from going counterclockwise. And the length is unbelievable!” Our half-Hopi central character — Una Waters — is on that Flight.
MYTHS AND MONSTERS
“In Search of…” explores Myths and Monsters in episodes like “Bigfoot”, “The Loch Ness Monster” and “The Abominable Snowman”.
In A GLEAM OF LIGHT, Una ventures into the desert at night with friends, hoping to find the Mystery Cave that has sparked controversy and triggered a U.S. Army invasion of Hopiland’s Sacred Peaks. Near the cave entrance, she is attacked by a beastly creature known as a Skinwalker (To the Navajos … ‘he who walks on all fours’.)
THE DRAGON’S GLARE
Book 2 explores ASIAN Mythology among Immigrants in New York City’s Chinatown. Through meditation, Tibetan Masters reach ENLIGHTENMENT, communicate with Otherworldly Inhabitants in Shambhala, and confront the violent threat of gang members controlled by a modern day DRAGON.
“In Search of…” explores The Paranormal in episodes like “The Bermuda Triangle”, “The Magic of Stonehenge” and “UFO Captives” .
In THE DRAGON’S GLARE, Una experiences an episode of “Missing Time” when she cannot account for her whereabouts for eight hours following a Chinese New Year’s Parade. Much later she comes to realize that she must have had a “Close Encounter” with Extraterrestrials. In his book, Missing Time (1988) abduction researcher Budd Hopkins reports how people who have experienced Alien abductions often retain no memory of them — until the details are recalled under hypnosis.
“In Search of…” explores Strange Earthly Visitors in episodes like “Ancient Aviators”, “Martians” and “Aliens”.
In THE DRAGON’S GLARE, Una realizes that she is being followed by a mysterious stranger in Chinatown. She finally meets him Face-to-Face late one night at the Hayden Planetarium — to discover that he’s an Alien-Human hybrid. Una calls him CASPER — because he reminds her of a “friendly ghost”.
BEYOND THE WORLD
Book 3 explores the AFRICAN Mythology of Kenyan immigrants from the Kikuyu Tribe, on a field trip to Yosemite National Park. Una learns about Ngai, divider of the universe, (who gave them Guardianship of the Water) from new friends in Explorer’s Club as they journey across Yosemite and discover an ALIEN Conspiracy … that threatens the Future of Humanity.
OUTER SPACE CONNECTION
“In Search of…” explores The Outer Space Connection to Earth in episodes like “UFO Australia”, “A Call from Space”, “UFO Coverups”.
In BEYOND THE WORLD, with the help of friends from Explorer’s Club, Una discovers a UFO Mystery at Upper Young’s Lake in Yosemite National Park — and coincidentally, maybe the biggest OWL she ever saw. In his book, The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee (2015), Mike Clelland demonstrates that the UFO phenomenon often uses the owl motif as a means to mask the real nature of “Close Encounters”. Witnesses report seeing impossibly large owls associated with UFOs.
“In Search of…” explores Lost Civilizations in episodes like “Mayan Mysteries”, “Inca Treasure” and “Atlantis”.
In BEYOND THE WORLD, Una and friends enter a cave in Yosemite to elude a military style manhunt … and discover something more — a Secret Underworld of Ancient Tunnels built with advanced technology. For many years, California tales and legends have spoken of advanced ALIEN technology found in UNDERGROUND caverns and tunnels, with surface openings from which UFO’s emerge.
