Summary
Believe it or not, there was a real person behind the newspaper column and television series, Ripley's Believe It or Not! Robert Ripley was a man with wide-ranging interests who initially wanted to be a pro baseball player but wound up creating a popular informational cartoon series that made him very wealthy. He traveled the world in search of unusual facts and artifacts, and though he was socially awkward and rather eccentric, his personal life was as fascinating as the unusual facts he collected. Illustrations of curiosities from Ripley's extraordinary career help bring to life his irresistibly outlandish character. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
