    I Also Recommend:

    An entertaining look at the weird, the wacky and unusual in all 50 states.

    I enjoyed this book because of the original stories and legends that can be told about weirdness in all 50 states. You can read this book all at once, or in small doses. (It makes a great bathroom reading source.) You can read about a man who played his last poker game after he had frozen to death, New Mexico's primitive "leaning tower," the Headless Horseman of Texas, why Custer might have died anyway if he had survived the battle of Little Big Horn and other diverting strange facts. Dale Crawford's illustrations complement the writing of John Hafnor. In all, it makes a good gift and a conversation piece if left on your coffee table.

    History Fun

    What an interesting book! If you like trivia, quirky facts, or history, you will absolutely love this book.

    Every state has a tale to tell, and the author has certainly delivered up some fascinating history. Best of all, the book is fun to read. The general layout of the book is one page of story and one illustration page. The stories range from heartwarming, to horrible, to down-right strange, but all are entertaining.

    My favorite was my home state story of Fast Eddie, but the story of the student who killed the oldest living thing came in a close second! An additional section of the book, When Doomsday Came Calling in Your State, is quite an eye opener. Finally, the section called Thumbing Through America's Weird Past is a meandering tour of the different areas of the country with bits and pieces of historical trivia.

    The illustrators love of history and the old west shows in his detailed contributions to the book. The combination of story and drawings create a complete picture of each of the stories. This is a wonderful book for ages 10 - 110. You can also check out the author's website,, for additional information and even some collectable state postcards with tales from the book.

    Strange but true fun is this title?

    There are two things that can get me as excited as a kid; trivia and history. Yesterday I received the book Strange but true, America weird tales from all 50 states yesterday and by this afternoon I was done reading it. Thanks Lone Pine Publications for putting out such a fun book and sending a copy to me.
    This is a must have book for all American history lovers, not to mention those who love American trivia. The book is broken down by state. The reader can pick and chose which stories to read as each piece or article is written as if it came from a newspaper column. I found it fun to jump around reading about Native Americans, then our presidents and finally about some of our more colorful American citizens. My favorite piece is titled Skull 'speaks' of prehistoric kindness. In this article the reader is told of some 9,000 year old skulls found with their brains intact. The DNA evidence shows there is no connection to present day Native Americans. Why haven't we heard about this in the news? I find it terribly fascinating.
    Towards the back of the book there are very short trivia pieces that are as fascinating as the longer articles. Did you know several planes carrying nuclear missiles have crashed on American soil? Look under the heading When Doomsday came calling to your state to find out when and where this has happened.
    This book will surely please those who love the Uncle John's trivia books. I have several relatives on my holiday gift list who do. This is the book they will receive instead.
