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!

Fun book! Good for natives who want to know more about our state, or great to put in your guest room for Arkansas visitors to read.

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.

Very disappointed in this book. There is not enough information about the curiosities. Very brief and seems like the author just skimmed over everything.

Because I grew up in Arkansas, the book is more interesting to me than it probably would be to folks who weren't raised there. Still, I find myself dozing off at some of short stories. It's a collection of wierd, odd, and true stories about different towns in Arkansas. If you don't plan on visiting Arkansas or weren't raised there, then you shouldn't buy this book as it will be a waste of your money.
