Publisher Comments:

Hail Minnesota for its strange sites, bizarre history, and peculiar folks! Come along and climb the Witch's Tower, sit down in a two-story outhouse, and spend a night in the Drunk Tank at the JailHouse Historic Inn. Then go gape at the country's largest collection of underwear. After all that, relax at the Bowling Hall of Fame. This new paperback version of Weird Minnesota is a wild and wacky trip you'll never forget.

About the Author

Eric Dregni is an MFA candidate in creative nonfiction at the University of Minnesota, where he avoids classes by driving to visit the oversize lumberjack statues that fill his fair state. His road trips in search of bizarre attractions have yielded Minnesota Marvels and Midwest Marvels, published by the University of Minnesota Press. He lived in Italy for four years, where he ate pig trotters and cow brains, followed by a year as a Fulbright Fellow in Trondheim, Norway, where he feasted on rakfisk (fermented fish). He now lives in Minneapolis.
