Summary

From Apache creation myths and Christopher Columbus’s STD-ridden arrival on the shores of America, to Elvis, the Mole People, and Roswell, a humorous look at the seminal events and legends in US history. In George Washington Is Cash Money, readers will learn the absolutely true stories of:
  • The UFO at Roswell was a weather balloon--patched up with floral-print scotch tape.
  • The Salem Witch trials happened because a couple of teens wanted attention.
  • Joseph Smith invented Mormonism by staring into a hat full of rocks.
  • Elvis Presley watched up to three TVs at once, and changed channels by shooting them with guns.

Author Biography

Cory O'Brien is a word-wizard and technojester of the first degree. He reads and writes mythology, science fiction, and computer code. He has camped with gypsies, juggled for food, and driven across the country in a car powered by vegetable oil. Now he lives in Chicago, where he recently graduated with an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Cory's dream is to one day travel to Mars, or at least to own a jacket made entirely of pockets.
