Dur­ing World War II, some­thing hap­pened that nobody ever talks about. This is a tale of mys­te­ri­ous bal­loons, cow­boy sher­iffs, and young chil­dren caught up in the winds of war. And silence, the ter­ror of silence.

Reporters Peter Lang-Stan­ton and Nick Fara­go tell us the sto­ry of a seem­ing­ly ridicu­lous, almost whim­si­cal series of attacks on the US between Novem­ber of 1944 and May of 1945. With the help of writer Ross Coen, geol­o­gist Elisa Bergslien, and pro­fes­sor Mike Sweeney, we uncov­er a nation­al secret that led to tragedy in a sleepy log­ging town in south cen­tral Oregon.
