Far-flung Hubbell

By Hubbell, Sue

Publishers Summary:
"The subjects of the thirteen travel pieces in this book include: where to find the best homemade pies in the United States (including recipes) - something on which the author holds strong convictions ("Never order pie within one mile of an interstate highway"); Elvis Presley "sightings" around the country; the demise of the five-and-dime stores; "bug art" (astonishing tracings of symmetry and beauty made by the movements of bugs); truck stops across the country; the mythology of earthquake predictions; the fifty-third Annual Magic Get-Together in Colon, Michigan, where the author spends a week with one thousand magicians; the National Bowling Hall of Fame and Museum in St. Louis; a visit to the Florida newsroom of those scandal-flogging tabloids Weekly World News and the National Enquirer; the difficulties of driving in Boston; and canoeing in the Boundary Waters Area between Minnesota and Canada."--BOOK JACKET.
