Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Peach State has to offer! Whether you're a born-and-raised Georgian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Georgia Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as William Schemmel takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Peach State. Visit the home of what-could-be-Elvis's wrist wart; the birthplace of a tree that owns itself; and the zigzag wall of cultural-cosmic-colored totems. Meet a pig-costume-wearing reverend colonel and a crazy-for-kangaroo-conservation tour guide.Try a savory chunk o' chitlin; a salty swig of Lumpy Coke; and a MoonPie that locals claim is out of this world!
