Three Research Reference Books I Can't Live Without! Dog-Earred and Highlighted

I'm a nerd at heart. That's why I'm 11 years into GHT blog and even more years researching and investigating. I have a fair library of reference books but some are such good sources of info, I have worn them down over the years. Here's a list of SO-WORTH-IT reference books for those into the unexplained and ancient mysteries - 

Emory Strong

Ancient Native history in America is critical to understanding what was happening on this plentiful continent before the advent of English-speaking record keepers. Strong's book tells of a region that saw the last melting of the Pleistocene Era and clues to some things in America that don't quite add up. There are photos and info in the book of historic significance that somehow got lost in our teachings. How about this tribe found in the 1800s what is now the Las Vegas area - 

strange Nevada tribe 

Their paper hats and bearded faces very much resembled the Ainu people of Japan. 


That's only some of the amazing finds in this book of information squirreled away and forgotten or disregarded.
I find I get frustrated with anthropology in general because the scholars often act like petulant parents if you ask questions. They flap their hand and dismiss what you said, end of discussion. 
I hope that our education becomes more independent like book publishing, music, the art industry, and other arenas of focus. Then, perhaps we can get rebels who will sit down and have a discussion without feeling it threatens their formal schooling or those who pay for their research and expect them to tow a line.

Richard Dewhurst

My obsessions with giants is apparent. And when a researcher is willing to spend his time and his efforts to dig up all the evidence he can, I am the first to give him kudos. Dewhurst did a most excellent job of digging up hidden info and sharing it openly. When I want to know about giants and incidents that may not have been documented by others, this is my one favorite giant book to reference. It has almost as many words marked in yellow highlighter as it has plain type.

John Haywood

This is my #1 favorite research book of all time and it blows my mind. Info from digs in Tennessee in the 1700s revealed not only giants and mounds but also the little people - LOTS of them. It is so dog-earred and highlighted and underlined that the book should have just been printed that way. When you start reading, you not only can't put it down, but you can't stop from marking it up to remember passages.

I have a lot of great research books and I wish I could give them all a big thumbs up, but I figured if you wondered where Ghost Hunting Theories is getting lost in the pages - these  three books are the top of the info heap!
