BRANSON, Mo. - March 8, 2017 - PRLog -- Books-A-Million to Host Book Signing for Wicked Branson

Local authors Edward Underwood, Karen Underwood & John Pinney will be available to sign copies of book


Branson's wholesome brand of entertainment made it the nation's destination for family fun, but the vacation wonderland can't claim a spotless past. Murder and mischief dogged the town's efforts at respectability from the very beginning. The founder's own brother, Galba Branson, was a prominent member of the notorious vigilante gang the Bald Knobbers. He died in a picnic shootout that originated in a church prank. Branson's transformation into a showbiz mecca brought quarrel and scandal in its wake, from provoked orangutans to wire-tapped dressing rooms. Three comedians and authors—Ed and Karen Underwood and John Pinney—offer this backstage pass to the seamier side of Branson's history.

Highlights from the book include:

·         The book follows the development of Branson from the frontier days to the present.

·         Many historic photographs from the earliest days of Branson are included in the book.

·         The book tells the tale of some of the lesser known and unsung heroes that helped transform Branson from a muddy hillside into a multi-billion dollar industry.
