For more than thirty years, the mystery of crop circles has caused passionate debate baffling farmers who own the land, police who investigate them, and scientists who study them. Viewed from above, these complex designs of circles, straight lines, arabesques, and symmetrical patterns reveal their forms in perfect harmony without the slightest identifying mark of their creators or clues from where they came. In Crop Circles: Evidence of a Cover-up, author Nicolas Montigiani addresses three central questions that remain at the core of these agricultural enigmas:|
Who or what is responsible for creating crop circles?
How are crop circles made?
What is the reason for their existence? From meteorology to the military, Crop Circles provides a detailed history of the phenomena and a thorough discussion of the various causes that have been proposed over the years. With exploratory rigor and a good deal of humor, Nicolas Montigiani demonstrates once and for all that extraterrestrials have had little to do with the geometric impressions that have been puzzling people for decades. The authorís systematic approach is investigative journalism at its best. As a journalist and an avid photographer, Montigiani used his investigative skills to locate a reasonable, scientific, and convincing cause of crop circles and to offer the most likely explanation made to date. Ultimately, he relies on logic, hard evidence, and history to arrive at an answer that has been thirty yearís in waiting one that certainly wonít leave his readers running in circles.
