Fear no more! With 'Odd Laws', the essential handbook for law-abiding travellers, you will know: not to dance on turtles in Malaya or hunt camels in Arizona, get fish drunk in Oklahoma or wrestle an untrained bull in public in England.
Packed with amazing and side-splitting anecdotes of crime and punishment, Odd Laws proves what we all suspected, that sometimes the law really is an ass.
