About this product
- DescriptionConnecticut Curiosities, 3rd Edition is part of a GPP homegrown series of state-specific books that describe, with humor and affection-and a healthy dose of attitude-the oddest, quirkiest, and most outlandish places, personalities, events, and phemena found within the state's borders and in the chronicles of its history.A fun, accessible read for travelers and n travelers alike-a great armchair book with quirky b/w photographs throughout and maps for each region. They can be thought of as combination almanacs, off-the-wall travel guides, and wacky news gazettes, all with a decidedly humorous twist.The narrative is good-naturedly humorous. Connecticut Curiosities, 3rd Edition is filled with humorous state facts and amusing stories and sports a visually varied, browsable design (with sidebars, archival photos, etc.). Part zany Connecticut guidebook and part Who's Who of odd and unsung heroes, this compendium of the state's quirks and characters will amuse Connecticut residents and visitors alike.
