Summary: From the pen of a "Prairie Home Companion" writer comes this inspired collection of well-known and not-so-well-known Minnesota oddities. Read about places such as Basshenge in Birchdale and the Home of Swollen Big Toe; events such as the Eelpout Festival; and phenomenon such as the world's largest prairie chicken. Even longtime residents of the Twin Cities may be surprised to discover the No Wake Café, situated on a Mississippi barge, and to learn how Princess Kay of the Milky Way gets sculpted in butter. Don't miss the insightful commentary on the state's most illustrious curiosity--Governor Jesse Ventura.
