This book is a little like a book on bed & breakfasts, except what is reviewed are places where you can have a spiritual retreat. There are listings for every state in the US. It usually includes a little history of each retreat, who is currently running it, the programs available, what the building is like and where you will be staying. As well there is a description of the grounds and physical area.
Its beautifully written and is a joy to read. It is especially useful for the spiritual seeker, looking for an appropriate place for a retreat.
