'We forget so much of childhood, but why? And why does at least some of it seem like such an important loss?' In this ground-breaking book, Strieber explores the strangeness of childhood and posits that the essential innocence of children is 'unearthly' and that this must be because of alien visitation and education in our early years. He presents an argument, using his own research and experiences of alien visitation, to support his theory that we are being 'invaded' by alien communities from other planets which are essentially good and that they leave us when we become adults leaving us with a constant sense of their missing presence.
