Library Journal Review

pap. $10.95. trav Ever have the urge to tour the macabre or the bizarre? Then search no more. Seven hundred fifty of Europe's little-known curiosities await you in this special guide which highlights sewers and underground cities, anatomy museums and American Wild West towns. Directions, fees, and hours are included for each entry; subject indexes and a three-year festival calendar are appended. A good complement to William Bryson's Palace Under the Alps ( LJ 3/1/85). Highly recommended for well-rounded travel collections. Ann E. Cohen, Broome Cty. P.L., Binghamton, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
