About Minnesota Marvels:

Only in Minnesota can you snap a Polaroid of a fifty-five-foot-tall grinning green man with a size seventy-eight shoe or marvel at the spunk of a Swede who dedicated his life to spinning a gigantic ball of twine. Minnesota Marvels is a tour of the inspired, bizarre, sometimes gruesome, brilliant, scandalous, and funny sites around the state. Conveniently organized by town name and illustrated throughout, Minnesota Marvels is the perfect light-hearted guide for entertaining road trips.

"A tour of the inspired, bizarre, brilliant, scandalous and funny sites around the state. Conveniently organized by town name and illustrated throughout, Minnesota Marvels is the perfect light-hearted guide to entertaining road trips all over Minnesota." —Grand Forks Herald

"Minnesota Marvels is a travel guide with flair, a slightly off-center description of the sites that make this state unique. Nicely organized by town name, Eric Dregni’s travel guide offers a democratic collection of the state’s finest ‘marvels,’ many not found in standard tourist literature." —The Ripsaw News

About Midwest Marvels:

Regional travel expert Eric Dregni takes the reader on an off-center tour of the bizarre—and the beautiful—across Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotas, and Wisconsin, from the Corn Palace to the world's tallest structure: a TV tower jutting nearly a half mile into the sky. Complete with descriptions, driving directions, and photographs, Midwest Marvels is a must-have for everyone from armchair travelers to road warriors.

"Eric Dregni knows the Midwest at its most peculiar. Each entry in Dregni’s book—there are more than 100 featured—has a photograph and brief description, and also some anecdotal humor and commentary." —Minnesota Daily

"A tribute to our obsessions and passions, many of which are obnoxiously large monuments of commonplace creatures." —Capital Times
