Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
At Indianapolis's WISH-TV, Dick Wolfsie (Meetings with Barney) presides over a nearly daily celebration of Hoosier State oddities. Since 1991, the author of this book has booked, produced, and hosted approximately 3,200 shows featuring offbeat Indiana people and places. In the third edition of Indiana Curiosities, he brings us up to date on strange things that lurk and flourish in his beloved home state.
From the Publisher

In praise of Indiana Curiosities, first edition:

"Dick Wolfsie traveled Indiana's back roads to see with a fresh eye what the natives take for granted: better mousetraps, celebrity potato chips and a rosary made of bowling balls." ---Indianapolis Monthly

    Fun!

    This is a fun little book to pick up when you have a free weekend to just jump in the car and drive. Great for 2-day vacations!
