Published prior to the airing of Twin Peaks the Return, co-creator Mark Frost used this book to resolve a few plot lines from the old TV series that would not be addressed in the new series. The book places the story of Twin Peaks into a larger historical context, with sections dedicated to the Lewis & Clark expedition and to the Nez Perce tribe. There is also a great deal of UFO material, including a scene with Richard Nixon. It is a very odd book that is well suited to compliment a very odd TV show.

Deepens the mystery of the TV series. Much like the show itself, the book is an intriguing, strange, funny, and sometimes bewildering journey. It makes a for a great bridge between the original TV run and the follow-up series of 2017.

Presented as a top secret dossier that falls into the hands of the FBI, to say this is wide-ranging is a gross understatement. This is the universe and mythology of Twin Peaks including: Native American lore, Lewis and Clark, Freemasons, nuclear testing, Roswell, the JFK assassination, L. Ron Hubbard, The Illuminati, UFO sightings and Men in Black, alien abduction - basically every conspiracy theory topic you've ever heard of is in there somewhere. If this all sounds a bit overwhelming, you're not wrong but it's easier to follow than most episodes of the show and there are some useful insights into the pasts of several key characters (though fewer that fans would probably like). Useful reading for Twin Peaks fans.

The Secret History of Twin Peaks has got to be one of the most thorough and engrossing books ever to be based on a television series. It introduces a level of intrigue and excitement to the Twin Peaks universe that I always suspected was there, lying dormant and waiting for the right time to emerge, but never thought I would see with my own eyes.

Good book- essential reading if you're a fan of Twin Peaks. The book is written as a dossier, a collection of articles- it starts off slow but is worth reading.

Let me start off this review by stating that I am totally biased because I love everything Twin Peaks related. But all jokes aside, this book is absolutely beautiful. You can tell that there was SO MUCH work put into it. All true TP fans will love this especially if you like history. I don't but I still find it fascinating. The book is composed of documents, pictures and more for the reader to access starting from the era with Lewis and Clark up to present day. Everything about this is absolutely beautiful. I think that it was well worth the money. I started reading it as soon as it arrived. The beginning is a slow start but I still very much enjoy it and can't wait to get further in it. I can already tell that I will cherish this book for many years to come.

A ridiculous amount of fun surrounding the mysteries of Twin Peaks. This book takes you on a ride from Meriwether Lewis to Chief Joseph to Richard Nixon and through the occult, Native American mythology, UFOs, giant people from Finland, and L. Ron Hubbard. Additionally, lots of backstory on Twin Peaks characters and their some of their ancestry. Fans of Twin Peaks will not be disappointed!
