Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

We won't claim that Sterling's Weird series put weirdness on the map, but we can safely assert that these off-the-beaten-track guides have added a whole new dimension to American strangeness. This installment, for instance, reveals aspects of Colorado that are seldom mentioned in visitor's bureau brochures. A wonderfully bizarre Centennial State celebration.

    Fun reading. Being born and raised in Colorado thought I had seen and heard everything. Wrong guess. I guess I will get Weird Tennessee next since my husband was born and raised there.
