Some of the tales were more interesting than others. There were a couple of gems in here though such as the horse whisperer and the basketball team. Also enjoyed learning what the Ohio-Michigan war was all about.

Interesting unknown facts about places all over Ohio? Who knew there was a 1920's monument to a pig right by the Towne Mall? Now I have to go check it out! Surprised Big Butter Jesus wasn't in this one.
