Frank K.Gallant

A Place Called Peculiar

From Bug Tussle, Alabama, to Donnybrook, New York, this pop-culture history offers a highly entertaining survey of America's most unusual place-names and their often-humorous origins. Frank K. Gallant traveled the country — meeting locals, eating in their restaurants, staying at their hotels — and recorded the best of the stories and legends he encountered. The only nationwide survey of its kind, this book features a state-by-state format for easy reference. It's also an irresistible browsing book for aficionados of American history, language, and culture.
