About this title


There is more to Illinois than cornfields, corrupt politicians, and the Cubs! The Land of Lincoln is filled with fascinating people, one-of-a-kind places, and things with unique and bizarre histories. Forget about quaint small town bed-and-breakfasts and crowded Chicago nightclubs—Oddball Illinois, now fully updated and expanded, takes you to the places you really want to go. See:


  • Henry’s Rabbit Ranch
  • America’s One and Only Hippie Memorial
  • World’s First Jungle Gym
  • Popeye’s Hometown
  • The Leather Archives and Museum
  • General Santa Ana’s two wooden legs
  • World’s Largest Sock Monkey
  • Scarlett O’Hara’s green drapes
  • The Friendship Shoe Fence
  • And many, many more sites

 This book belongs in your glove box—you never know when you’ll be in range of an oddball adventure!
