Vegans. Skateboarders. Trekkies. The Cult of the Individual is alive and well and expressing itself all over America-and this book proves it. With this enlightening (and sometimes frightening) field guide, you'll delve into the customs, mores, and motivations behind every type of fan, geek, and superfreak, from Utopians and Happening Artists to Cryptozoologists and Swingers.

Whether the obsession is music . . . food . . . sports . . . fashion . . . there are people who take their "hobbies" to an extreme the rest of us can only imagine. With Freak Nation, you'll get a bird's-eye view of these hobbies gone wild-from sea to shining sea!
