Synopses & Reviews
Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Lone Star State has to offer!
Visit thousand-pound concrete horses on Interstate 35, hundreds of fiberglass hippos in Hutto, and the too-many-to-count antlers on a 15-foot deer-horn tree.
Meet a cross-dressing, three-time mayoral candidate; a musician who creates roadkill hats; and a corn-artifact-collecting connoisseur.
Check out a chicken cock-a-doodle-dooing on your bingo square; a sprinkling of oatmeal flakes from the sky; and a blow-the-biggest-bubble chewing gum contest—a sticky situation youll love getting into!
Whether youre a born-and-raised Texan or a recent transplant, author John Kelso 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.
Humor columnist John Kelso captures the strange-but-true spirit of Texas with this combination almanac, off-the-wall travel guide, and wacky news gazette. His narrative entertains and provides plenty of choice material worthy of repeating at social gatherings--a great read for Texans, Texan wannabes, and anyone who enjoys humor and trivia with a twist.
