From Smut Eye, Alabama, to Tie Siding, Wyoming, 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.
