Where can one find the world s largest prairie chicken, a restaurant shaped like a fish, a massive Paul Bunyan, or an enormous ear of corn?

Whether it serves art, commerce, or local pride, the colossus is always a place in itself, a stopping place where the everyday rules of reality are suspended and the observer can gain insight into the way these communities imagine themselves.Karal Ann Marling visits dozens of these roadside attractions, viewing them analytically, intellectually, and enthusiastically, tracing each one through folklore and literature. Heavily illustrated, this book takes the reader on the road to examine these treasures and all that they represent. Bookseller Inventory # POW9780816636723
