Overview

Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and Davy Crockett are some of the roughest, toughest characters to ever blaze the frontier. Clever as the crack of a whip and strong as a wildcat, these tall-tale heroes each left a legacy of larger-than-life deeds that has captured the American imagination for over a century. Three rib-tickling tracks tell the whole story believe it or not. When Americans set out to conquer a wild frontier, they needed larger-than-life role models to match their big surroundings. Enter Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and Davy Crockett, tall-tale heroes whose stories were told around campfires and at town socials, and whose deeds became ever more amazing (and outlandish) in the retelling.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 5—Three great classic American tall tales, retold by Melody Warnick, present the stories of two fictional characters—Paul Bunyan, the giant lumberjack, and Pecos Bill, the greatest cowboy of all time—as well as Davy Crockett, "king of the wild frontier," whose life was transformed into a legendary tall-tale after his death. The basics of each tale are true to the original versions. Narrator Stephen McLaughlin perfectly captures the imaginative and humorous antics of these bigger than life heroes. Suitable for public library collections.—Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY
