Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

You know you're in kansas when:
. . . people set fires on purpose
. . . you know what vareniki, moos, and bohne beroggi are
. . . the post office has an outhouse instead of a bathroom

Kansas has its own view of the world. Look through that lens and learn 101 quintessential people, places, events, eats, and traditions that help form the personality of the Sunflower State.

You'll find out why some ranchers love the smell of burning grass, how to make a Mennonite delicacy from boiled dough and ham gravy, and which mail carriers visit the Priority Privy. Whether you're a first-time visitor or a born-and-bred native, this book will make you smile as you discover what it really means to be in Kansas.

About the Author

In addition to the very funny Girlfriend Getaways and Kansas Curiosities (both Globe Pequot), author Pam Grout has written ten books and has an award-winning travel column, "Now, Where Was I?" A stringer for People magazine, she has also been published by the Washington Post, Family Circle, Ladies' Home Journal, Scientific American Explorations, and many others.

More About the Author

Pam Grout is a hopeless romantic who still believes the world is a beautiful place, that people are noble and that anything is possible.

For a living (and she always wonders why people think that's such an important question), she writes books and articles for such magazines as People, Cooking Light and Travel & Leisure. She also enjoys writing bedtime stories for her daughter, but that's more about making a life than a living. She's keenly aware there's a huge difference.

In making a life, she has traveled to all the world's continents, learned 59 ways to make a fort out of sofa cushions, perfected a mean tennis forehand and volunteered at a women's prison and free health clinic.

She lives in Lawrence, Kansas with her daughter, Tasman. Check out her sometimes updated website at www.pamgrout.com
