Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0747272271, Hardcover)

From the Machui Picchu - the Inca stronghold in the Peruvian Andes - to the Pyramids in Egypt - the site of the dawn of civilization - there are certain places on Earth which continue to exert a mysterious hold over us through the centuries. In an easy-to-use reference form, this text tells the stories and the places where the foundations of religions and beliefs have been laid - both the famous, such as Easter Island, Lourdes in France, and England's Stonehenge, and the less well known, such as The Devil's Tower in Wyoming, an ancient Indian sacred ground which featured in the UFO movie "Close Encounters" with perhaps a closer link than was intended by the film makers.
