Bought this 12 years ago. Went ghost and cemetery hopping for weeks here in Los Angeles. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you're looking for something thrilling to do in late October. Covers the entire U.S.

I love this book. Any time I travel (and being in a band, that happens a lot) I take this book with me, and if we near any places in the book, we'll stop to check them out.

Even if you don't use it as a tour guide, it's still a great little book to brush up on some scary ghost stories you can share with your friends.

This is a fun, easily-digested digest of descriptions of hauntings. I intend to someday use it as a guide to determine which hotels to book in the future. ;)
