Vastly informative and engrossing… The essential LA travel reference book.
Auman takes readers on a middle-of-the-road tour of spiritual places in and around LA in her latest travel guide. In a detailed, straightway account, she describes urban legends, longtime mysteries, the landmarks of various traditional religions, historical accounts, homes of the rich and famous, and architectural wonders. Her account forms a charming story, drawing readers with her engaging style and relating LA’s history and many different belief systems. Maintaining a candid, lighthearted tone, Auman fully engages readers in LA’s spiritual landscape and details the city’s exotic tableau with spirituality. The sprightly colored, full-page photographs of different locations enliven the narrative. Sprinkled with seemingly irrelevant and yet amusing yarns—the inclusion of food spots, inns frequented by celebrities—this lively tour of LA is a welcome recess from stuffed, boring travel guides. It will appeal to spiritualists and historians alike. Travelers will be benefitted, whether or not they are planning a trip to the city of dreams.
