Publisher Comments:

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Beaver State has to offer!

Whether youre a born-and-raised Oregonian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Oregon Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Harriet Baskas takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Beaver State. 

• Meet the lovely but carnivorous Darlingtonia californica lily and the ghostly Bandage Man from

   loggers heaven.

• Discover the Best Funky Food Show, where Jell-O is the medium with the message; the Silvy 250, a

   race in which love seats and recliners get rolling; and an infamous lighthouse known as “Terrible Tilly,”
   where only the dead are welcome to stay.

• Experience a town with streets full of frogs, an eight-state mac n cheese contest, and the unsettling

  Oregon Vortex where gravity goes giddy.

Synopsis:

The definitive collection of Oregon's odd, wacky, and most offbeat people, places, and things, for Beaver State residents and anyone else who enjoys local humor and trivia with a twist.
