Inhaltsangabe: Forget the Farmers and say Adios to the Astrologers-- The Arizona Liar's Almanac is here! Filled with information on the local climate, flora, fauna, geography, modern living, and more, this endlessly entertaining book is guaranteed to make readers wonder, laugh out loud, and wish it was all true.

And maybe it is! Why shouldn't quicksand make faster-working sandpaper? And why wouldn't the state's biggest export be sunshine? In between dispensing wisdom on home remedies and the weather, author Jim Cook--Arizona's Official State Liar--tells readers the truth behind the lost mines that riddle the Grand Canyon State, the sought-after recipe for Beenie Weenie Pie, and the renowned Society of Woolgatherers.

Über den Autor: Jim Cook, Official State Liar of Arizona, is also director of the Wickenburg Institute of Factual Diversity, located beside the storied Hassayampa River (www.wickenburg-az.com/journal.html). The Institute works to shed the shackles of fact and expand the truth about Arizona. In other words, Cook is a practitioner of that elegant tradition, the Western tall tale. He is a former writer and editor at the Arizona Republic and has forgotten more about Arizona history than any ten newcomers will ever know. His history column was a fixture at the Republic until his retirement in 1994. He is a native Arizonan.

Jim Willoughby is widely considered the best cowboy cartoonist in the West. His work has appeared in such magazines as Saturday Evening Post, Look Magazine, True, Better Homes and Gardens, and Playboy. He also spent 20 years in the television animation business, drawing storyboards and designing characters for Walt Disney Studios, Hanna-Barbera, Filmation Studios, and others. Jim has authored nine books about cowboys, cacti, and cooking and draws a regular cartoon for Arizona Highways called "Willoughby's West."
