Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"... freaky and fascinating... Cavinder is a storyteller with an engaging sense of humor." --Gary (IN) Post-Tribune

"Because the contents of this eminently readable book cover many people, places, and events there is something for every reader young and old." --Madison Courier

It's Ripley's with a Hoosier twist--Fred Cavinder has put together a group of findings and stories, some kooky and strange, some from the twilight zone, some historical oddities and fascinations, all gleaned from Indiana. Submitted for your consideration: the blind man who designed and built an automobile, the "volunteer" tree growing out of a courthouse roof, and much, much more.

Synopsis:

Reality is often stranger than fiction, and the true wonders of the world are as amazing as anything dreamed of by the producers of fantasy - four-headed cows, Taj Mahals, 1,000-pound people. here is a collection of tales and incredible 'facts, ' some kooky and strange, some from the twilight zone, historical oddities and other fascinations.
