From the Back Cover:

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Pine Tree State has to offer!
Whether you’re a born-and-raised Mainer, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Maine Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Tim Sample and Steve Bither take you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Pine Tree State.  Discover the very best places for blueberry pie, tube steaks, Italian sandwiches (the real Maine food), and—we kid you not—chocolate moose.
Meet a chain saw sculptor who can carve the entire alphabet on a No. 2 pencil, carve your name on a belt buckle while you’re wearing it, and carve a sculpture using two chain saws at the same time.
Learn how a desert ended up in the middle of Maine; about Moxie, the state’s official soft drink; and why Maine has no poisonous snakes.
