Seeing Is Believing is the zany history of US travelling carnivals from the 1870s to World War II. In this book, readers will find out who manufactured the Polly-Moo-Zuke, the Two-Headed Giant, and the Devil Fish; hear showmen's stories of hoochie coochie dancing bears, monkeys racing miniature race cars, and the strange people who made a living eating snakes; hear the barker say: "Come in! Trained fleas, people exhibited in ice, and girls that change into gorillas are all inside!" Under canvas, the hottest black nightclub acts perform in black revue shows. Many attractions are alive. Hundreds more are dead, stuffed, or mummified. Never has so much been on show for so little a price! These are the attractions readers will probably never see again...
