Description

Foster's English Oddities is a wonderful collection of England's quirkiest characters, most extraordinary facts and strangest coincidences. This fascinating book is a must-read for anyone interested in English trivia! Are you tired of conventional history books that tell you the stuff that everyone knows but neglect to mention the more colourful tales? Well, this isn't that kind of book! What about the stories of...The man who lived for thirty-two years after being shot through the heart? The first goat to circumnavigate the world (twice!)? The horse that won the Grand National with the aid of 2lbs of butter? The blind woman who could distinguish colours and read print using her fingers? The man who left his estate to his sons on the condition that neither one ever grow a moustache?
