I've lived in Georgia all my life and I always thought the most mysterious thing about the state was why we keep supporting the Atlanta Falcons. Jim Miles book details more amazing oddities.
This is a great guidebook for those who want to see the biggest state east of the Mississippi in a different light. Miles' well researched book not only tells about such odd things as the Georgia Guide Stones, but it also tells how to find them. I couldn't put this book down. This summer I am going to go on a mystery excursion right here in the old Peach State using Jim Miles' book as a road map.

Jim Miles has captured the essence of the unknown. The book is a masterpiece and should be on every Georgian's shelf. His accounts of the various phenomena encountered are wonderful. I especially liked the Georgia Swamp Ape Research Center. GET THIS BOOK! READ THIS BOOK! It is funny and informative.

This is one of the most informative books, I have read on the paranormal.
It is also wildly entertaining! I am a native Georgian, so I have heard some of the legends regarding our lovely State. I have read and reread this wonderful book. It doesn't only focus on UFO's as an earlier reviewer stated. In fact, one of the most fascinating accounts, is of
Roman coins that washed up on the banks of the Chattahoochee River!!

Jim gets an A++ for a well written history of the paranormal events in
our great State. Hope he writes more like this one.

While there is some good information in this book, I found the author's style disjointed and a little odd, making much of the book difficult to wade through. Also, there's a strong emphasis on UFO sightings, so unless you've got a keen interest in that subject you might find yourself skipping quite a bit of the book.

This book was really interesting and had alot of unknown and unheard of topics in related to strange place, events, creatures and i dont even live in Georgia but it was very informative, easy flowing style of writting. In-depth, talks alot about bigfoot, ufo etc... weird burial grounds and stuff.

Good read and I learned a lot about things to see in Georgia.
Hate to say it, but, needs more pics. Will Google some of the things I couldn't get to in person.
Little too much UFO stuff but I read most of it.
