Tall tale of a Tennessee giant of a woman called Swamp Angel (Angelica Longrider) and Thundering Tarnation, a bear who has been eating the winter stores of everyone around. When there's a contest to hunt the bear down, the men taunt Swamp Angel, but she is the victor. After fighting with the bear for five days straight, they fall asleep, still fighting and their snores bring down trees. One falls on the bear. The people feast on him, and Swamp Angel is given his pelt.
