If you ever wanted to know how the Grand Canyon was formed and how Old Faithful came to be this is the book for you. These tale tales are amusing pieces of American folklore. It's hard not to love a book when the cook's name is Cream Puff Fatty. The illustrations were nicely done line drawings, I only wish there were more.
This one's a collections of tall tales about Paul Bunyan, the giant lumberjack of the great North Woods. It's a really nice book. The stories are told in a clear and entertaining manner, embellished with amusing illustrations by Mr. McCormick. It would be a welcome addition to any collection of folk tales--which is why I want it on my shelf.
