Foster's Scottish Oddities is a fascinating collection of odd, bizarre and barely believable true stories. For many years, author Allen Foster has been collecting these oddities and now presents them in this brand new collection. There's the cod that swallowed a bible, the cow that fell through the ceiling, the hare that ran off with a GBP 10 note, the brothers from Dalkeith who were separated at birth but bumped into each other purely by chance in Coventry, the ocean liner that got a speeding ticket, the trawlerman swept off his boat by a huge wave then washed back on board minutes later - and much more. Foster's Scottish Oddities is a collection of strange coincidences, curious facts and extraordinary stories. If you love bizarre facts then this treasure trove of amazing true stories is a must read.
