While some people like to read books and others play board games with their families, many hobbies are a bit stranger. This wild book looks at the collections Americans treasure and the games they love--even if the collection is of their own fingernails and the game is bug fighting! Engaging subject matter and photos show Americans relaxing in the oddest ways imaginable, delighting even the most reluctant of readers.
