    One Reply to “Passing Gas: And Other Towns along the American Highway”

    1. This is about towns with funny names: Gas, Kansas; Dull, Ohio; Yum Yum, Tennessee; Left Hand, West Virginia; etc.The author over the course of a couple of years visited these towns. In each he photographed someone in the town in front of some place that symbolized it. The book is mostly about portrait photography. The author also explains, if he knows, how the town got its funny name.

    2. This book is a hoot! Towns with unusually funny names and the history of the names. Great photos of locals.

    3. Seriously how could I pass up this book when it was facing out on the library shelf? Hahaha Fun and quick read about uniquely named towns and how that name originated. Big smiles reading this one.
