A look inside the historic mental hospital that served as the location for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest-includes photos.

Seen through the eyes of those who lived there, this book examines the world of a mental hospital established in Salem, Oregon, in 1883-where, in desperate attempts to cure their patients, physicians injected them with deadly medications, cut holes in their heads, and sterilized them.

Years of insufficient funding caused the hospital to decay into a crumbling, understaffed facility, which was later used as the setting for the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Today, after a $360 million makeover, Oregon State Hospital is a modern treatment hospital for the state's civil and forensic mentally ill. In this compelling account of the institution's tragedies and triumphs, author Diane Goeres-Gardner offers an unparalleled look at the very human story of Oregon's historic asylum.
