Author: Brian Day
Brian Day lives in a small town at the base of the Bighorn Mountains in north-central Wyoming with his wife Joelle, two cats, and two dogs. He makes his living in construction and hopes to further his writing career.
Wyoming is unique among states, and now there is a book that proves it. “Wyoming Trivia” by Brian Day is packed with hundreds of eye-opening questions and answers about America’s wild and wide-open state. From Wyoming’s historical beginnings to modern times, this book mines the state’s richest veins of astounding facts and figures.
Indeed, there are answers to questions you never thought of asking. The book is sure to draw attention from residents and tourists alike, introducing both casual and serious readers to all manner of interesting information about the state, delivered in an easy-to-absorb manner. “I hope people have as much fun reading this as I did writing it,” Day said.
“Wyoming Trivia” is like the game of ‘Trivial Pursuit’ in a book. Over 250 questions on each of six different categories are guaranteed to keep busy for hours. “I know more inconsequential information about Wyoming than anyone else in the state, and I have the book to prove it,” says Day, who resides in Dayton, Wyoming, adding that he constantly reminds people that the book is not a test. “It’s not about how much you know; it’s about how much you want to learn.” Day says.
If you've ever wondered where you would find the biggest rodeo, the most unusual doorstop, or glow-in-the-dark gemstones; if you’ve ever been curious about ringing rocks, vanishing rivers, and the world’s only hand-dug oil well, then crack the covers of Wyoming Trivia and prepare to be amazed and amused.
“Wyoming Trivia” belongs in every classroom, bathroom, and barroom. The 168-page paperback sells for $9.95 and is available at bookstores or by calling Riverbend Publishing toll-free 1-866-787-2363. With 1,318 questions and answers, it works out to less than a penny per fact.
Always remember our motto, in the immortal words of Max Beerbohm, “Good sense about trivialities is better than nonsense about things that matter.”
