Book - What's With St. Louis?


Product Description

Why do I feel like I'm in an outdoor sauna during the summer? Are all the stop signs just a suggestion, because no one seems to obey them? And what's with the word "hoosier" when we're two states away from Indiana? These and other nagging questions about St. Louis have perplexed natives and newcomers for generations. Author Valerie Kienzle scoured archives and consulted local experts to find the answers, and she presents her findings here in What's With St. Louis? A Handbook to understanding a city and its ways.  Part history lesson and part cultural study, Kienzle's work reveals the backstories of meaningful places and events, not to mention common and sometimes odd customs of language, recreation and food preference. Curious to know if Cardinal Nation is a religious group or why everyone keeps asking where went to high school? Look no further than this entertaining and informative book for answers!
