This collection of biographical short stories will have you laughing and shaking your head in wonder at the unusual individuals who have earned the title of "eccentric".There is Tom "Windwagon" Smith who had the great idea of using giant sailed wagons to travel swiftly across the plains using wind power.In the 1800's humphrey Noyes established a community of "mate-swappers". Find out how Calamity Jane got her name. There's the story of the man who made $100 a day sitting on flagpoles.Oofty Goofty actually let people hit him with a baseball bat for 50 cents. It is also entertaining to read about the crazy things rich people have done with their money
