“At a time when films of US Navy jets chasing UFOs are being declassified, and when it has been revealed that a secret Pentagon program studied the ‘human interface and human effects’ aspects of UFO encounters, the abduction phenomenon is being looked at with fresh eyes. Captured! takes us back to the phenomenon's 'ground zero' and gives readers the inside story of the case that would first bring the alien abduction mystery to the attention of the world.”

Nick Pope, UK Ministry of Defense (Ret.)


“Kathleen Marden is not only the niece of Betty and Barney Hill but is one of the leading UFO researchers of our time. Her collaboration with the legendary researcher Stanton Friedman has resulted in the definitive work on the most important UFO abduction case of the twentieth century.”

Richard Dolan, author of UFOS and the National Security State


Captured! describes how, in 1961, extraterrestrials interfered with the lives of Barney and Betty Hill by first abducting them into a UFO that had landed in rural New Hampshire, and then examining them—just the way we humans would study captured members of a new species. The book was written by the late Stanton Friedman, a physicist who was also a pioneer UFO investigator, and Kathleen Marden, Betty Hill’s niece, who continues to study and describe the reality of ET presence and ET interference in human lives. For well-understood reasons, people with power and influence would prefer to ignore the evidence in Captured! My advice is: read Captured! and don’t ignore the evidence.”

Don C. Donderi, PhD Associate Professor (Retired), McGill University Department of Psychology, Montreal, Canada


"Kathleen Marden is the authority on non-human contact. She has the facts and data collected by MUFON and her Experiencer Research Team to delve deep into the Human Alien Experience and help us make sense of it all. It's time to embrace who we are, and where we fit in to God's grand design. "—Jan Harzan, Executive Director, Mutual UFO Network


“The famous 1961 Betty and Barney Hill abduction by non-humans is taken apart, meticulously re-examined by Betty’s niece Kathleen Marden and nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman, and reinforced by the pressure of facts.” —Linda Moulton Howe, Emmy award-winning TV producer, reporter, and editor,

Today, 60 years after the UFO abduction of Betty and Barney Hill, more and more people are convinced that UFOs are real and their existence is being covered up by the government. If you have doubts or questions about the Hill case or alien experiences in general, Captured! will give you the answers you’re searching for.

The 1961 abduction of the Hills stirred worldwide interest and enthralled the public and media for decades. The case is mentioned in almost all UFO abduction books. It also became a target for debunkers, who still attack it today. But the complete story of what really happened that day, its effect on the participants, and the findings of investigators has never been told—until now.

In Captured! you’ll get an insider’s look at the alien abduction, previously unpublished information about the lives of the Hills before and after Barney’s death in 1969, their status as celebrities, Betty’s experiences as a UFO investigator, and other activities before her death in 2004. Kathleen Marden, Betty Hill’s niece, shares details from her discussions with Betty and from the evidence of the UFO abduction. She also looks at the Hills’ riveting hypnosis sessions about their time onboard the spacecraft. In addition, coauthor, physicist, and ufologist Stanton T. Friedman reviews and refutes the arguments of those who have attacked the Hill case, including the star map Betty Hill saw inside the craft and later recreated.

Stanton T. Friedman was a nuclear physicist who worked on a wide variety of advanced, classified nuclear systems for major industrial companies. He began the civilian investigation of the Roswell Incident; wrote Flying Saucers and Science and TOP SECRET/MAJIC; and coauthored Crash at Corona, Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience, and Science Was Wrong. He appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs. Friedman resides in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
