 Hunt For The Skinwalker [book, audiobook, nonfiction(?)]

AS A LITTLE KID CONSPIRACY, CRYPTID, ALIEN, AND JUST GENERAL FAKE WOO SCIENCE STUFF WAS SOMETHING I WAS OBSESSED WITH. I WOULD JUST READ ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ABOUT A RUSSIAN GUY MAKING BUGS OUT OF ROCKS OR A PREDICTION OF THE WORLD GETTING SWOOPERED IN 1996.  I THINK THE FIRST THING THAT HAPPENED TO STOP THAT WAS JUST GETTING OLDER AND BEING LESS DUMB SO WHEN A BOOK SAID "THEN AN ALIEN TALKED TO ME TELEPATHICALLY" I COULD JUST SAY "NO IT DIDN'T" AND THAT WAS THE END. BUT THE LARGER THING I FEEL LIKE HAPPENED IS THAT CONSPIRACY STUFF JUST ISN'T FUN ANYMORE. IN THE LAST 20 YEARS IT FEELS LIKE EVERYTHING CONSPIRACY STOPPED BEING COOL OR FUN AND IS NOW JUST FAR RIGHT ULTRA CONSERVATIVE STUFF. I KNOW AS A KID PART IS I SIMPLY MISSED ANY POLITICAL UNDERTONE TO SAYING ROTHCHILD IS A SPACE LIZARD, AND THINGS LIKE DISTRUST OF THE GOVERNMENT ARE KINDA INHERENT TO CONSPIRACY AND IS ALWAYS A LITTLE RIGHT LEANING. BUT EVERYTHING CONSPIRACY IS SO SOAKED IN THAT POLITIC NOW IT'S JUST NOT FUN ANYMORE. EVERY CONSPIRACY TYPE MESSAGE BOARD IS JUST A KKK MEETING NOW. THE ONLY THING NOT THAT WAY IS ALTERNATE HEALTH NONSENSE, WHICH YOU CAN MEET LIKE, HOMESTEADER THAT WON'T VACCINATE THEIR DOGS OR WHATEVER, BUT THAT ISN'T FUN EITHER.   

I THINK THIS SPECIFIC BOOK DIDN'T FULLY CLICK WITH ME, BUT I GET WHY IT WOULD WITH SOMEONE LIKE ME THAT MISSES THE OLD DAYS OF FUN CONSPIRACY, THE SECRET IS YOU CAN'T READ SOMETHING DIRECTLY ABOUT THE THING, YOU NEED TO FIND A BOOK LIKE THIS WHERE IT'S SOMEONE SAYING "HERE IS WHAT SOMEONE ELSE SAID, THE BOOK IS ABOUT THE THING, I'M NOT SAYING IT" IN THE WAY I FEEL LIKE I FELT THE SPARK OF NONSENSE I USED TO LOVE WATCHING A LONG VIDEO ABOUT DISCREDITED PALENOTOLOGICAL THEORIES, WHERE THE VIDEO WASN'T SAYING THEY WERE TRUE, JUST "HEY LOOK WHAT SOMEONE THOUGHT ONCE". I THINK THE GUY IN THIS BOOK STEPPED TOO FAR INTO STICKING UP FOR THINGS, BUT I GET LIKING THIS BOOK AS 'GUY DESCRIBES WHAT ANOTHER GUY SAID' WHERE THE GUY SPEAKING IS VAGUELY NEUTRAL THAT CAN MAKE CONSPIRACY STUFF INTERESTING AGAIN. 

PS. MY FAVORITE PART WAS THERE BEING A NEEDLESS SNAKE IN THE POND, LIKE THE POND DIDN'T HAVE ANY LONG HISTORY SO IT DIDN'T GET A COOL MONSTER, IT WAS JUST LIKE NOTHING COULDN'T BE A CRYPTID SO THE POND JUST HAD A FAKE SNAKE. I ALSO LIKE HOW INSISTENT THE MONSTER MUST HAVE FEAR POWERS AND HOW MANY TIMES HE REPEATED IT. I FEEL LIKE HE PEEDED HIS PANTS IN FEAR AND THEN TRIED TO BLAME IT ON SOME "I WASN'T SCARED, ALIENS USED A FEAR BEAM ON ME! I SWEAR! COME ON GUYS, I WASN'T SCARED! IT WAS THE ALIEN!"
