"For the most part, the stuff in this book will not be advertised on billboards to draw you off the highway exits. This is a book for people who like the quirky, the offbeat, and the unusual. If you have absolutely no interest in how to astro-turf your car or where to find the John Wayne Museum, or a good frog race, you might want to buy one of those other books. . ." From the Introduction.

Indiana Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things Indiana has to offer. Humor columnist and television reporter Dick Wolfsie has combed Indiana for one-of-a-kind gems that make his home state truly unique.
You'll meet a man who collects mousetraps, a woman with a front-yard rosary made of bowling balls, a guy with two million corks in his basement, and the master of ceremonies for the Celebrity Duct Tape Contest.
You'll tour a cookie cutter museum, a windmill museum, an RV museum, and the oldest continually operating hardware store in Indiana, which might as well be a museum.
And where else but in Indiana would you find the world's largest high school gymnasium?
Whether you were born and raised in Indiana or are a recent transplant, Wolfsie's home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never know you had and takes you to the places you never knew existed - right in your own back yard.
Dick Wolfsie books, produces, and hosts daily live segments for the Channel 8 morning news at WISH-TV (CBS), in his hometown of Indianapolis--usually with his dog, Barney. In all, he has created some 3,200 shows featuring offbeat goings-on around town and around the state. Dick's syndicated humor column compilations, Life in a Nutshell, and his recent Dick Wolfsie's New Book are local best sellers. This active author has also hosted shows on radio, cable, and network television.
