I had wanted to read John Keel’s Jadoo: Out of print, and sometimes hard to find, I finally picked up a reasonably priced copy of it. Running roughly pages, it is one hell of an interesting read. But this book is before all that.
Published inthis was his debut, and chronicles his life traveling around the Middle East in search of unusual stories.
Jadoo by John Keel ()
He delves into the secrets of snake charmers and mystics. He learned the rather jadoo Indian Rope Trick. He searches for a Yeti in the mountains near Tibet.
He does all this by the seat of his pants, with almost no money, and encounters plenty of problems. It’s a very entertaining read, and through it all, despite his overall skepticism, he finds some truly unexplainable things out there. At the same time, you jlhn really feel what he is describing, from the squalor of certain areas, to the majesty of others.

In jsdoo, if you like Keel’s style, his frank, and humorous approach, you will like Jadoo, and I would highly recommend tracking down a copy.

Would love to see more footage from the events in the book.
