New Book From Tom King
« on: August 08, 2018, 10:33:58 AM »

An article about Tom King’s new book “Amelia Earhart Unrescued,”

I have not read this but it sounds interesting.

Tom wrote the novel as an individual and not as a representative of TIGHAR.   His imagined portrayal of events is entirely his own.

I just finished reading it and enjoyed it.
I liked the descriptions of the island. Part of the island had a leafy plant you could eat? Possible ancient habitation?
There are sections after each chapter that discuss the basis for including some of the artifacts and history into the fictional story. These sections are on grey pages to help separate them. I liked this format.
There are some artifacts I was not aware of. For example, what may be the remains of a hair curling iron that were found at the Seven Site.

Nothing in the book should be taken to be endorsed by TIGHAR.  You were not aware of the supposed curling iron because no such artifact has been accessioned or researched by TIGHAR.
