Readers with an interest in unsolved mysteries and legends will find a good source in the Odysseys in Mysteries series. Alien Abductions describes what many abduction and alien reports have in common, some of the theories that aim to explain such events, as well as descriptions of recorded encounters. Bermuda Triangle explores the history of lost ships and planes in the triangle, examines the lore that surrounds this part of the ocean, and provides accounts and possible explanations for the mysterious occurrences. Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) provides information and statistics about the similarities found in re- ported NDEs, the challenges of researching this phenomenon, NDE accounts throughout history, and proposed reasons for these experiences.

Digital illustrations and color photographs accompany the text, which flows smoothly and is well organized in five sections.
