Back cover copy

Whether you're a native Coloradoan or a recent transplant, Colorado Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Pam Grout takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Centennial State. Meet a man who hosted his own funeral for more than thirty years, and a street performer who knows more than 48,000 zip codes by heart. Take a ride in former ski bum Jon Barnes s Ultimate Taxi, a veritable rolling theater that features magic tricks, live sax music, and a laser light show. Experience the Great Fruitcake Toss, an annual festival that celebrates the world s most reviled and underappreciated food."
