"An awe-inspiring collection of North American locations, noted for their connection to the spiritual, the mystical, and the anthropological. From lava beds, to caves, mounds, mountain retreats and temples, Olsen has covered it, with effectively shot black and white photos and maps of his own creation." —Entertainment Weekly
"Olsen provides hand-drawn maps and detailed driving directions to help guide readers to each strange attraction. He offers information on each site, juxtaposing local folklore and Native American legend with scientific theories or physical evidence to provide context. Look for the paperback in bookstores." —Orlando Sentinel

Brad Olsen has come up with yet another special book. Sacred places covers a large number of sites and other attractions you won't read about elsewhere. Some (such as Elvis Presley's Graceland) are unexpected; others are natural areas such as Joshua Tree and Denali; still others are Native American religious landmarks such as Chaco Canyon. Even if you aren't the least bit "New Age" or "spiritual," but just someone who appreciates nature and unusual places, you'll find Brad's book to be a great compendium. And directions are included!
