Packed with rich illustrations, National Geographic’s first-ever guide to the world’s supernatural places showcases more than 250 spooky destinations around the globe. Uncover the origins of the vampire, found not only in Romania, but also in Madagascar and the Philippines. Encounter the array of ghosts said to haunt deserted battlefields, abandoned mental asylums, cemeteries and other spine-tingling sites. Consider the possibility of extraterrestrials spotted everywhere from Sedona, Arizona to Flatwoods, West Virginia. And experience the mystical origins of such extraordinary places as Ayers Rock, Australia and Chichén Itzá, Mexico. Vivid, dramatic, and chock full of inside information on when to visit, this spooky book will convince you that there might be more out there than meets the eye.
