Travel to places in America that are haunted, mysterious, and totally bizarre in “Eerie America—Travel Guide of the Macabre” by E R ‘Corvis Nocturnum’ Vernor and Kevin Eads. (Schiffer Books 2014)

But the tour doesn’t end there. Eerie America is a travel guide filled with 150 color images, addresses, and directions to many of the macabre attractions in the United States. You will visit places such as old battleships, abandoned prisons, and lunatic asylums.

Each chapter of Eerie American offers ideas where to visit, where to dine, and where you might stay the night with a ghost or two in each US state. Come along and visit the Exotic World Museum in Nevada and the Museum of Death in California. See the Witch’s Dungeon Classic Movie Museum in Colorado. Enter the Voodoo Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana and examine the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices in Minnesota. Travel through the Shanghai Tunnels in Oregon, and march across the battlefields of Gettysburg.
