Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Texas Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to 234 of the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Lone Star State has to offer. Humor columnist John Kelso has traveled 13,000 Texas miles in search of the one-of-a-kind gems that make his home state truly unique.

Inside: You'll meet a man who sculpted a giant dung beetle (dung ball and all), a woman with a passion for The Munsters, and a whole town that competes in an annual beard-growing contest. You'll discover the best places to eat fried rattlesnake, fried chicken tails, and barbecue so tender you can gum it. You'll tour a wooden nickel museum, a funeral history museum, and the cockroach hall of fame museum - featuring Liberoachie, Marilyn Monroach, and Ross Peroach.

Whether you're Texas born and raised or a recent transplant, John Kelso's home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed - right in your own backyard.
