I didn't want to put the book down and i probably would have finished it but i had a newborn and a 3 year old wanting my attention.
On page 148, it states that the land around Pacheco Pass (a stretch of highway 152 in Northern California) was part of the "Trail of Tears,"
I thought this is Northern Georgia history? There is a possibility that i'm wrong because i never attended my history class in highschool. Really, i didn't.
enjoyed it greatly. it works well as a reference book... or even as a book to flip to a random page and enjoy a new definition with Sylvia's twist put on it. referenced something she presented as a fact with another book of hers and found an inconsistancy... not sure if that was a mistake in editing or what but- this book was interesting if nothing else. if the fantastic interests you at all i think you'll find this book fascinating.
Edit: for those who want to know the fact was about on what level of the underworld unicorns exist. Read page 302... then read her book "Secrets & Mysteries of the World"- it gives a different level that unicorns are on... so which level is it? Maybe Sylvia simply had an error in editing. I am unsure. But since I've always felt I have a unicorn as an animal totem I was excited that she was of the opinion they do exist on another level.
