New Hampshire Curiosities
Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat StuffeBook - 2011 | Second edition.
Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places,and things the Granite State has to offer. Whether you're a born-and-raised New Hampshirite, a recent transplant, or just passing through, New Hampshire Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Eric Jones takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Granite State. Meet the state's Official Gull Harasser (Uh-huh, it's a government job); a man who made 2,850 consecutive ascents of Mount Monadnock; and Dean Kamen, New Hampshire's very own twenty-first-century Thomas Edison. Lament the passing of the state-sponsored Roadkill Auction, where the frozen carcasses of everything from bobcat to black bear were available to the highest bidder—until a rabies outbreak put an end to this time-honored tradition. Visit the Exeter UFO Festival--an annual event in the town that saw one of the most impressive UFO sightings on record, in September 1965 and the 1804 grave of a soldier's amputated leg.
