If you're planning to travel around in Montana this summer, Ednor Therriault can tell you where all the good stuff is. His new book, Montana Curiosities: Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat Stuff, is a guide to all things strange and weird in every part of Montana. Parts you've never heard of as well as parts well-known.
Use Montana Curiosities to plan your route across the state. (Therriault logged 8,000 Montana miles during his quest for quirky.) And plan to be surprised -- stunned, even.
As you drive into Cut Bank, you'll be greeted by a 27-foot-tall cement penguin. In Wolf Point, you can use an old phone to call your waitress, although she's standing about 15 feet away. Find out where to hear the one-man band of Erik "Fingers" Ray, or see a two-headed calf or a stuffed behemoth bovine.
If you've read Bob Wire's columns (Ednor Therriault, slightly disguised), which are published by NewWest.net, you'll know to anticipate a laugh-out-loud book.
