Kansas Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Sunflower State has to offer. Humor columnist Pam Grout has combed Kansas for one-of-a-kind gems that make her home state truly unique. You’ll see artwork fashioned solely from fossilized shark teeth, spend the local “funny money” that bears the likenesses of such Kansas luminaries as William Burroughs, and discover an underground city beneath an ordinary thrift shop. Whether you were born and raised in Kansas or are a recent transplant, Pam Grout’s home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as she introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and take you to the places you never knew existed – right in your own backyard.
“We’ve lived in Kansas our entire lives and this book still brought us great fun and many surprises. This is more proof that the Sunflower State may look flat and boring, but those who live here have no dull moments. Thanks for this book!“
