Synopsis:

This definitive collection of the North Star State's odd, wacky, and most offbeat people, places, and things is filled with quirky photographs throughout and maps for each region. Minnesota Curiosities includes humorous state facts and amusing stories and serves as a combination almanac, off-the-wall travel guide, and wacky news gazette.

About the Author

St. Paul, Minnesota, resident Russ Ringsak has been with PRI's "A Prairie Home Companion" since 1974. When he's not backstage writing up Garrison Keillor's rundown, he can be found behind the wheel of the 48-foot semi-trailer hauling the radio show's equipment between venues. Denise Remick is a freelance researcher and production artist.
