This loving and vividly illustrated celebration of America conjures up a time when tales were truly TALL. Set when the country was young and its horizons seemed endless, these epic stories portray a marvelous landscape where outsize legends grew and thrived. Sure to stir the imagination with its humor and wonderfully evocative illustrations, Animal Folk Tales of America features such celebrated figures as Pecos Bill riding a mountain lion; Davy Crockett getting outfoxed by a raccoon; and Paul Bunyan dealing with a mythological creature called a Rumptifusel. As author Tony Palazzo observes, these winning characters were fully “of the new land and the new land loved them. Their great adventures and monumental deeds will forever remain in America’s collective memory.”

The legends include:

  • The Jumping Frog
  • A Tale of Pecos Bill
  • Paul Bunyan and the Little Blue Ox
  • Sweet Betsy from Pike
  • Johnny Appleseed
  • Davy Crockett and the Sensible Varmint
  • And many more!
