This real-life The X-Files and Close Encounters of the Third Kind tells the true story of a computer programmer who tracks paranormal events along a 3,000-mile stretch through the heart of America and is drawn deeper and deeper into a vast conspiracy. Like “Agent Mulder” of The X-Files, computer programmer and sheriff’s deputy Zukowski is obsessed with tracking down UFO reports in Colorado. He would take the family with him on weekend trips to look for evidence of aliens. But this innocent hobby takes on a sinister urgency when Zukowski learns of mutilated livestock and sees the bodies of dead horses and cattle—whose exsanguination is inexplicable by any known human or animal means. Along an expanse of land stretching across the southern borders of Utah, Colorado, and Kansas, Zukowski discovers multiple bizarre incidences of mutilations and suddenly realizes that they cluster around the 37th parallel or “UFO Highway.” So begins an extraordinary and fascinating journey from El Paso and Rush, Colorado, to a mysterious space studies company and MUFON, from Roswell and Area 51 to the Pentagon and beyond; to underground secret military caverns and Indian sacred sites; beneath strange, unexplained lights in the sky and into corporations that obstruct and try to take over investigations. Inspiring and terrifying, this true story will keep you up at night, staring at the sky, and wondering if we really are alone—and what could happen next.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The 37th Parallel makes strong case for UFO’s. Riveting.” (USA Today) USA Today
“Mezrich writes vividly and grippingly…It all makes a terrific story.” Washington Post
“Extremely engaging…the inclusion of photos and important documents really helps the reader understand the intricacies of the investigation.” Press Association (UK)
“The author narrates this real-life account of the ‘UFO Highway’ in the American West. Computer programmer and sheriff’s deputy Chuck Zukowski has spent decades pursuing answers to questions about life beyond Earth, exploring a chunk of the country where claims of alien sightings and encounters seem to be disproportionate to those in the rest of the country. What he finds may not be definitive proof of extraterrestrial visitations, but it definitely raises questions about who may be out there. Both in his prose and his narration, Mezrich delivers this material straight, pulling no punches and giving no hints of disbelief…He’s written a compelling account.” AudioFile
