Did you know that after the Civil War a fine was imposed on Newport parents who allowed their children to play on a Sunday, that Darwin began On the Origin of the Species, while staying at the Kings Head Hotel, or that there are 21 tourists to every Island resident? This is a funny, fact-packed compendium of the sort of frivolous, fantastic, or simply strange information which no one will want to be without. The Island’s most eccentric inhabitants, blood-curdling murders, and literally hundreds of facts combine to make this required reading for locals and visitors alike. Illustrated with humorous cartoons and delivered with wit and flair, this captivating compendium is almost impossible to put down.
