Synopsis: Explore the lives of over 150 of the top sideshow performers of by-gone days, as well as the history of the circus and sideshow. Take a look behind the scenes at the banner artists, gaff artists, photographers, and showmen who made the freak show as American as apple pie. The performers were born different?very different?yet they managed to create a life for themselves, find gainful employment, travel the world, marry, and have children. Some even managed to find true happiness. You will meet some very unique souls in extraordinary bodies. Look beyond their physical differences and delve into their interesting stories. See for yourself why being born different is not so bad, with the right attitude and a little luck!

About the Author: Mary Brett spent over three years researching the lives of the 152 performers presented in this work. Her carnival vet partner, Steve Gould, assisted her with turning her curiosity into a collection for others to enjoy and discover.
