Paul Bunyan was never "stumped," and no job was ever too big for him and his blue ox to handle. From Michigan to Minnesota, from North Dakota to the Pacific Northwest, wherever Paul went, he liked to do things in a big way.
In Esther Shepard's classic collection, originally published in 1924 and now available in this handsome new edition, the Paul Bunyan stories are superbly told in folksy narrative and robustly illustrated with Rockwell Kent's line drawings. These twenty-one tales about the super lumberjack are a unique American contribution to the world's folklore.
Includes an introduction by the author.
