Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Tar Heel State has to offer! Whether you're a born-and-raised North Carolinian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, North Carolina Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Jon Elliston, Kent Priestley, and Constance E. Richards take you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Tar Heel State. Visit DINO-Kinetics, a fascinating collection of life-size welded-steel pterodactyls and other dinosaurs that belch smoke, roar, and rattle. Learn how dozens of dachshunds dominate a town on Weiner Dog Day; how Christmas in July is a hot holiday to celebrate; and how locals make melodic mouth music at the International Whistlers Convention. Meet an out-of-this-world ôufologistö a quirky exotic-animal-collecting rancher; and a real-life pirate and his homemade ship-definitely a treasure to behold! Book jacket.
