Pickled Punks and Girlie Shows: A Life Spent on the Midways of America Paperback / softback
by RICK WEST
Step down a little closer; you don't want to miss a thing.
Join fifty-year sideshow veteran, Rick West, on a strange and wonderful trip through behind-the-scenes tales of his life as a showman.
The strange, the bizarre, the unusual comprise this engaging memoir bursting at the seams with rare images of two-headed cows, Bigfoot creatures, pickled punks, showgirls, humongous hogs, 3,500-pound steers, and much, much more.
From attending the Ozark Empire Fair at age five to revealing the true story behind Frank Hansen's infamous Minnesota Iceman, the author takes the reader into the world of America's sideshows and midway grind shows.
It's all here; it's all on the inside. See it now or miss it forever. It's showtime!
