Overview

Alabama Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Heart of Dixie has to offer. Author Andy Duncan has combed Alabama for one-of-a-kind gems that make his home state truly unique.
" You'll meet the nation's most famous blind golfer; a mobster's moll; and a vivid assortment of aliens, monsters, and "thangs" that go bump in the night.
" You'll visit an interstate fish fling; graves of the famous, the pure, and the canine; and a store where you can buy a 40-carat emerald, live rattlesnake, or shrunken head-- cheap.
" You'll discover Hitler's tea service and typewriter; giant peaches, peanuts, and a boll weevil; and the bridge that roosters built.
Whether you were born and raised in Alabama or are a recent transplant, Andy Duncan's home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed-right in your own backyard.
