Weird Tennessee: Your Travel Guide to Tennessee's Local Legends and Best Kept Secretsby Roger Manley, Mark Sceurman (Foreword by), Mark Moran (Foreword by)
What's peculiar in Tennessee? How about a supernatural creature called the White Bluff Screamer? Phantoms drift among overgrown ruins, and the eerie headlamps of dead miners call to mind a grisly disaster from a bygone age. Then there are large-scale oddities, such as a ten-story tree house mounted on seven oaks. Buckle up: Weird Tennessee is a ride too incredible to miss!

I purchased this book about 1 year ago (2012), and have been to see about 15 of the oddities in the book. It's a great source to find out some unusual history about the state. My only complaints about this book is that some of the items in the book are no longer available to see, and I wish the writer would have provided more detailed directions to the sites. But, I guess finding the sites is part of the adventure! I would buy this book again if something happened to it. So, buy it and have some fun.
