Roadside Americana takes you on an armchair tour of some of the gaudiest, kitschiest, and weirdest wonders in the United States and Canada. The book explains the history of the roadside attraction and gives you an up-close look at hundreds of fascinating examples, including:

Solomon s Castle in Ona, Florida, a shiny 10,000-square-foot private residence and bed and breakfast constructed from recycled materials in the style of a mediaeval castle
W eel, a 40-foot turtle in Dunseith, North Dakota, made from 2,000 tire rims
The Mitchell Corn Palace, a turreted palace in Mitchell, South Dakota, decorated with thousands of bushels of corn and other grains
The world s largest red wagon, Spokane Washington s 12-foot-high, 27-foot-long Radio Flyer that can hold 300 children
Elbe, Washington s Hobo Inn, a collection of seven old cabooses converted into motel rooms

If you want to get a good look at the crazy and zany side of America, Roadside Americana is the perfect book for you.
