The World’s Most Mysterious Places is a collection of stories about lost lands, weird locations, and strange sites, many of which the authors have investigated in person. Some of the places are actual sites we can visit, others are legendary lands that have long since vanished. All are sure to intrigue and astound the reader.
Here you will discover: a bookshop in San Antonio, Texas, that seems to be haunted by the ghosts of the defenders of the Alamo who were cremated on that site; the "crash site" of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico; the Chase Vault, a mysterious tomb in Christ Church, Barbados, where caskets are moved by some unknown force; Oak Island, Nova Scotia, site of the famous Money Pit; the home of the legendary Sasquatch in the Rocky Mountains; Lake Okanagan, home to the aquatic monster Ogopogo; the lost continent of Atlantis; the homes of Noah’s Ark and the Ark of the Covenant; and many other mysterious sites.
