Most visitors know all about Kansas City?s barbecue, jazz, and football success, but there are hidden gems and wild pieces of trivia around every turn in Missouri?s largest city. Is the giant Hereford bull anatomically correct? Can a seed that?s been to outer space still grow into a normal tree? And who really killed President William Henry Harrison? You?ll find answers to the questions you didn?t know you had in Secret Kansas City: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. Learn why three completely unrelated groups have chosen Kansas City as the center of the world and the place you want to be when the world ends. Between these covers, you?ll also find castles, a horse buried in a cul-de-sac, a ghost who likes a good laugh, and the world?s longest snake. This is not a tour guide for outsiders, it?s a scavenger hunt?insiders only, please. Longtime Kansas Citian Anne Kniggendorf is at your service to bolster your love and boost your respect for this middle-of-the-map city. With her eye for the odd leading the way, you?ll have a great time discovering Kansas City.
