Arizona Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Grand Canyon State has to offer. Popular humor columnist Sam Lowe has combed Arizona for one-of-a-kind gems that make his home state truly unique. You'll meet John Shaw, a minor-league thief who posthumously drank a shot of whiskey; you'll see Arizona's special brand of roadside wildlife; you'll experience competitive Arizona sports such as worm racing, cotton-bale rolling, outhouse penny-pitching, and ostrich riding. Whether you were born and raised in Arizona or are a recent transplant, Lowe's home-grown humor will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and takes you to places you never knew existed - right in your own backyard.
