A new book tells the story of a California man who allegedly encountered an unidentified flying object and its occupants in 1964 in the Tahoe National Forest, just east of Sacramento. The book, "Aliens in the Forest: The Cisco Grove UFO Encounter," was written by UFO researchers Noe Torres and Ruben Uriarte, and is available online at,, and most online book sellers.

In the new book, the authors, who are members of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), relate the story of 26-year-old Donald R. Shrum, a former welder for the Aerojet Missile Corporation of Sacramento, who, according to the book, claims that while bow hunting with two friends in 1964, he saw a very large, cigar-shaped flying saucer zoom across the sky toward him. As told in the book, Shrum was then approached by several very strange non-human beings that he claims came out of the UFO, and that, out of fright, he climbed a tall pine tree from where he resisted the creatures' attempts to abduct him.
