Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Whether you’re a born-and-raised Arkansan, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Arkansas Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Janie and Wyatt Jones take you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Natural State.

Read about one man’s 1957 social experiment in a clothes-minded state, which prompted an anti-nudity law that may be unique in the Western world.
 
Fly along with a Labrador Retriever named Bear, who in 1974 vanished on an Arkansas-bound plane and ended up crisscrossing America before returning home to a hero’s welcome.

Learn how a famed fowl’s rumored return in 2004 after sixty years of apparent extinction caused a
flutter among bird lovers everywhere.

About the Author

I found this book to be extremely interesting to the point that I couldn't put it down. I've lived in Arkansas all my life,so I was surprised to find out just how many quirky characters and roadside oddities there are/were. Kudos to the both of you. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Insites January 26, 2012

Format:Paperback
Arkansas Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff (Curiosities Series)

Having lived in Arkansas for a few years I had heard of some of the items listed in this book. I found the writing and humor used to describe many of them to be wonderfully connected. I plan on checking some of them out in person, both the historical and humorus. Would recommend this book to anyine with an interest in the unusual.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough info December 6, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very disappointed in this book. There is not enough information about the curiosities. Very brief and seems like the author just skimmed over everything.
