About this deal

For centuries, the whereabouts of the celebrated astronomer's final resting place had remained a mystery. Throughout the book are stories that are just plain amazing or coincidental, as well as utterly unexplainable accounts (bodies that never decompose, nuns that are found hovering in the air). Taking a neutral stance, it explores the facts behind spells, seances and tarot cards, fortune tellers, witchcraft and wizardry, unexplained natural phenomena, and more. The parents got this book years ago when I was still in school and I was delighted to find it still knocking around the house.

The intriguing mysterious prehistoric stone circle known as Stonehenge is one of the world’s oldest and most famous holy sites. The Big Book of Unexplained Mysteries explores these and 38 other mysteries from the fields of science, history, true crime, the supernatural and a variety of other categories.The popular 1990s fictional US television series, The X-Files, was based loosely on the many conspiracy theories surrounding alien abductions and ufos.

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. I was so disappointed when the podcast ended, but, if you haven't, I recommend listening to all the episodes. Sapphire level titles provide a selection of stories and non-fiction titles chosen for their range of content, narrative and points of view. With so little of the planet left to explore - only the deepest oceans, maybe parts of the ice caps - it's like going to a magic show but knowing how all the tricks are done. A name adopted by various philosophical or religious societies which claim enlightenment, and especially used to refer to an 18th-century group of German free-thinkers known as the Bavarian Illuminati.In addition, the authors investigate Flight 19, lost cities, dinosaurs, ghosts, UFOs, the paranormal, and more. First published in 1903 and widely disseminated in the early twentieth century, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion purports to be the minutes from a nineteenth-century meeting of Jewish rabbis elaborating a secret plot to take over the world. This is one of the many books I had read as a kid, learned tidbits from, and hung on even to this day. My favorite is the "monsters" section which includes sightings of Nessie, Sasquatch, and many other strange creatures. It's nothing that half an hour on r/UnresolvedMysteries or r/TrueCreepy won't net you, but it's cute and charming in its dated, factually inaccurate, pre-internet way.
