Who was Robert Ripley? -- Santa Rosa -- San Francisco -- New York -- 'Round the world -- Big time -- Believe it or not! -- Miles and miles and miles -- BION Island fight -- Radio king -- TV star -- Timelines -- Bibliography.
"Enter a world of shrunken heads, mystic holy men, shriveled aliens, and bizarre relics in the delightfully odd tale of Robert Ripley. Born in California, Ripley began his career as a sports cartoonist. He went on to chronicle global records and oddities in his weekly column, Believe It Or Not! After publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst took an interest in the column, it became a syndicated global success. Ripley spent his life traveling to more than 200 countries in search of strange objects and interesting facts. His penchant for the peculiar launched an entertainment empire, and his collection of artifacts can be seen worldwide at his famous Odditoriums. Believe It Or Not!"-- Provided by publisher.
