5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating look at everything odd in the Peak District, 23 Jan. 2002
In this lively guide to the otherwordly, David Clarke takes the reader through the history and geography of the unexplained in the Peak District, the breathtakingly beautiful national park in central England. Much of the focus centers on the areas around the Longdendale Valley, Bleaklow Hill, and Kinder Scout, but much weirdness farther south around Ashbourne and Leek is also covered. From ghostly miners to mysterious earthlights, from phantom planes to the demonic great slug/whale thing seen crossing a lonely road at night (something right out of HP Lovecraft!), and from sinister mists to ancient cursed stones, this book has it all. I found it impossible to put down, what with the immediacy of the eyewitness accounts and Dr. Clarke's brisk writing style. He knows his material and he knows the area, and his scholarship is faultless.
If the truly bizarre interests you, this book will give you one the best introductions to all that is mysterious in a land already well known for high strangeness.
