Atlas of Cursed Places: A Travel Guide to Dangerous and Frightful Destinations
Pick up the acclaimed Atlas of Cursed Places and visit the world's most nerve-wracking locations. With pithy historical profiles, vintage full-color maps, and haunting tales that will color your perspective (and send tingles down your spine), this is a clever gift for the intrepid traveler or armchair adventurer who wants to explore destinations both remarkable and daunting. Visit a coal town where the ground is constantly on fire, a Zambian national park where more than 8 million bats darken the skies, the infamous suicide location of Aokigahara Forest near Mount Fuji, and the lesser-known Nevada triangle in which dozens of aircraft have inexplicably disappeared. Beautifully packaged and written with a twisty sense of humor, Atlas of Cursed Places puts your quirky side on the map.
