This page lists a number of .kml files for use with Google Earth.
They are compressed into .zip files so your browser will automatically download them to your computer.
They may download in a flash and your browser may display a blank page to indicate it has happened.
If your computer does not automatically decompress the .zip file to a .kml file, you may need to use Stuffit Expander or a similar decompression application on it.
Once you locate the .kml file on your computer, double-clicking on it should automatically start up Google Earth and display the .kml map overlay - be it a point, line or polygon/area, with the file placed and selected in your Temporary Places folder.
If you don’t have Google Earth installed on your computer, it is free here.
Here’s the list of .kml files:
