The second in the popular Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories series, this Appalachian Edition takes the reader to a vastly different location than the previous Desert Edition. Julie Ferguson captured a wide variety of abandoned sites in Appalachia in stunning photographs. Sharon Day performed a psychic read on each location to write emotionally-gripping vignettes of a person's life. Even though these locations are long since abandoned, there is still life within, information awaiting a psychic sensitive to bring them to life again with her touch. The book contains many bonus sections, as well, such as why cemeteries are haunted, tips on urban exploration and photography, the beautiful region of Appalachia, a bonus read on an abandoned stuffed animal in a cemetery, and tips on what it's like to perform psychometry (psychic reading elicited by touching an object). Once these visions are in the reader's mind, it will be as hard to let them go as it is for the psychic.

From Roman temples to Buddhist shrines in the Chinese desert, these hallowed halls have been abandoned to nature. More than 200 outstanding images show what happens to sacred places when humanity retreats. What happens when the congregation moves away from its place of worship? Or when shifting borders or persecution mean that people can no longer reach their church, synagogue, or mosque? Through magnificent, sometimes haunting images, Abandoned Sacred Places explores more than 100 lost worlds, including ancient and modern temples, synagogues, churches, mosques, and stone circles. Organized geographically, this unforgettable volume wanders from Stonehenge in England and Carnac in France to crumbling inner-city churches and synagogues in present-day Detroit and Chicago, from Mayan pyramids in Mexico to Hindu temples lost in the Indian jungle.

Hospitals, schools, churches, theaters, hotels, homes, industry, bridges, diners, malls, amusement parks and more. Ohio holds a huge collection of history that continues to fade away. Eventually all that will be left of many of these places are the photographs and memories.Ohio has so much incredible history that has been saved, but at the same time so much history that remains abandoned and practically forgotten. I find it sad and fascinating that these places are tossed aside like they are. Though they have been forgotten, there is such an interesting beauty inside their walls, decay and all.
