Fads come and go, but they're almost always weird. From troll dolls to pet rocks and even goldfish swallowing, there are plenty of weird fads hidden in American history. Full-color photographs introduce readers to one of America's earliest fads—drawing panoramas of towns—as well as some of the weirder phenomena like flagpole sitting or dance contests. With full-color photographs highlighting these odd toys, games, and hobbies, readers learn some of the reasons behind these trends in American history.
