 About the Book 

Land of the worlds largest prairie chicken, birthplace of Spam, and home of the worlds oldest rock, this is Minnesota, where summers are short, winters are long, and back-road wonders abound. This entertaining guide wastes no time with descriptionsMoreLand of the worlds largest prairie chicken, birthplace of Spam, and home of the worlds oldest rock, this is Minnesota, where summers are short, winters are long, and back-road wonders abound. This entertaining guide wastes no time with descriptions of scenic lakes, pristine bike trails, or quaint cafes. Instead it directs travellers (and residents) to the spot where Tiny Tim strummed his last notes on the ukulele- to the Cold Spring chapel where two grasshoppers bow down to the Virgin Mary- and to the McLeod County Museum, where the mummy on display could be from Peru or outer space. While ordinary tourists are fighting off mosquitoes in the Boundary Waters, oddball travellers can size up the worlds largest ear of corn and admire the fourth Zamboni ever built. And one last thing: there arent 10,000 lakes in Minnesota- there are 14,215. For travellers who are in search of the unusual, there is no better reason to park the bike and hiking boots in the garage, fill up the gas tank, and hit the road to Minnesota, where weirdness awaits.
