Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Washington Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things Washington State has to offer. Travel writer Harriet Baskas has combed Washington for one-of-a-kind gems that make her home state truly unique.

You'll meet a man who owns the world's second largest Frisbee collection; tour the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute; discover where to go to taste a gigantic cherry pie; take a dip in the healing waters of Soap Lake.

Whether you were born and raised in Washington or are a recent transplant, Baskas's home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as she introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed - right in your own backyard.

Synopsis:

Discover more than 200 of the unusual people, places, and things that make Washington such a kooky state, from the shrine to the Jolly Green Giant to the Whoop-N-Holler Ranch and Museum. Join author Harriet Baskas as she roams her home state admiring collections and joining in festivities in this latest addition to the popular Curiosities series.

About the Author

Author Harriet Baskas produces stories about unusual museums and hidden museum collections for public radio between writing such books as Museums of the Northwest (Sasquatch) and Stuck at the Airport (Simon & Schuster). If she didn't get this assignment, she would have campaigned to have her own collection of hankies-of-the-states featured. She lives in Seattle.
