Searching for Ropens and Finding God Fourth edition published in 2014 by J. D. Whitcomb Few nonfiction books in the 21st century have been more controversial than this detailed examination of eyewitness sighting reports of apparent living pterosaurs. The author of this cryptozoology paperback is Jonathan Whitcomb, of the Clover Crest Ward in Murray, Utah, who has written more about these flying creatures than any other writer. Much of this book covers his expedition on Umboi Island, Papua New Guinea, in 2004, and expeditions that followed.

Quoting Searching for Ropens and Finding God
Cryptozoology book by Jonathan Whitcomb Cross genre: more true-life adventure than religion From the third chapter of Searching for Ropens and Finding God: “Before spotting the creature . . . he and his friend stopped in a [jungle] clearing. The two soldiers heard a “crashing” noise in the brush, and when they looked toward the uphill side of the clearing they saw the creature take off into the air. Before this takeoff, it was unseen. . . . “. . . discovering an unfamiliar ant will not cause a sober soldier to look at a bird and imagine a giant long-tailed pterosaur, even if the bird is unfamiliar. And we have not one but two soldiers here. I suggest both soldiers should have been in a mood to see a flying creature and observe its true features and size and admit that . . . “The two men . . . saw something huge running from their right to left while flapping its wings, taking six to ten steps to get airborne. In the first moment of gazing at it, Hodgkinson assumed it was a bird.”

Continuing from the third chapter: [Duane Hodgkinson wanted to talk about what they had just seen, but his army buddy did not.] “. . . 'Well, George, we saw it,' was answered with, 'No, we didn’t!' [Apparently George, who had at least a little education in biology, had no desire to admit what they had seen in that clearing. Be aware that none of the interviews with D.H., done in recent decades by Jonathan Whitcomb and by Garth Guessman, give any hint that George ever suggested that they had seen only a bird or a bat; he just had no desire to talk about the strange encounter with a flying creature that was about the size of a Piper Tri-Pacer airplane.] “. . . like a tail at least ten or fifteen feet long. . . . [In recent decades Duane Hodgkinson] “has been a certified flight instructor with flying time over 13,000 hours. . . . he has continued to declare that he and his buddy clearly saw . . . a long-tailed creature with a wingspan similar to that of a Piper Tri-Pacer” [about 29 feet of wingspan]
