Book description:

 Have you ever had an encounter with a ghost? Would you like proof that the deceased continue to visit the world of the living? Do you have the courage to stand face-to-face with visitors from the afterlife?

‘Apparition Atlas: The Ghost Hunter’s Travel Guide to Haunted America’ provides seekers of truth with a definitive guide to more than 200 publicly accessible, verified haunted locations in all fifty states. Introductory chapters discuss the many different types of apparitions and explain everything the novice ghost hunter needs to know to search for things that go bump in the night.

Sometimes the spirits of the dead manifest themselves by slamming doors or through blood chilling screams; other times they come as glowing orbs of ectoplasm that float through walls, and occasionally they appear in their human form - fully formed, semi-transparent and terrifyingly real. Let us take you on a journey to places where close encounters with the departed occur with frightening regularity.

Guaranteed to make you doubt everything you believe about death being the end of existence.

Format: Kindle Edition
Apparition Atlas is a very interesting travel guide. The book has many features including help guides, rules, and listings by state. The front of the book contains "A Beginner's Guide to Ghosts and Ghost Hauntings. Following the guide is an index with a comprehensive list of Do's and Don'ts to help anyone from the novice to the expert in approaching the "art" of ghost hunting. Please remember that the buildings included in the book may be owned privately and trespassing is a No-No.

The authors list the states alphabetically with the name of the haunted building, where it's located, and a description of the haunting(s) that take place. There is a bit of history, if it's known, for each location. At the end of each location, the authors included the address information, hours of operation, any fees that may be charged, along with a rating of haunting intensity.

The Atlas is a very nicely put together state organized travel guide. I recommend those wishing to use it actually purchase a hard copy of the book. As much as I'm against writing in books, I would use the hard copy to make notes in about the places I planned to visit or did visit. It would be a nice way to mark off where you've been, which places you've seen, any experiences you had, and if you agree with the rating of the haunting provided by the authors.

Are you interested in the paranormal? Would you like to investigate hauntings like the paranormal groups on the Discovery, SyFy and other television networks do? Maybe you're already conducting some of your own amateur haunted investigations and want to step things up a bit.

Many people all over the world are getting into the ghost "game". There is no shortage of people claiming they've had paranormal experiences. Aside from television shows, there are hundreds of books, magazines and meetup groups devoted to the subject. Some are legitimate professionals and some are out purely for the sensationalism and financial gain. If you truly believe that spirits walk among us and want to find definitive proof for yourself then Apparition Atlas will set you on the right course.

Authors Daniel Diehl and Mark P. Donnelly have compiled an incredibly extensive list of reportedly haunted places throughout the United States. Listings are by state and include skull (scare) ratings and important information on each location. Backstories as to why the locations might be haunted are also detailed. As a Texan, I was happy to see two of my faves listed: Miss Molly's in Fort Worth and Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie. I've been to both and can highly recommend them!

The beginning chapters have some great, practical common sense advice and information for would-be ghost hunters. There are lots of Dos and Don'ts for paranormal investigators to consider before heading out to a location.

I would highly recommend Apparition Atlas as an excellent reference book for any established or newbie paranormal team looking for new haunts. I'd love it if the authors would write a follow-up book that includes some more details on actual hauntings. I'm a paranormal enthusiast and I'd definitely read another one of their books!
