A companion volume to Paul Bunyan Swings his Axe, this ì book contains twenty-one more tall tales of the giant logger and ì his Blue Ox, Babe. The stories of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue ì Ox come straight from the heart of America. These stories are ì told from the rolling woods of Maine to the timberlands of ì Washington, from the cypress swamps of the South to the redwoods ì of California. Behind the Paul Bunyan legends is the epic of men ì of the woods whose vigor and energy were nothing less than ì heroic. The adventures of the exploits of these colorful ì characters whose deeds in real life are almost incredible. Told ì first on winter nights around bunkhouse stoves in the lumber ì camps, these tall tales will long remain in legends of America ì with wildly imaginative drama of such whopping good lies as ì Paul's dredging Puget Sound, straightening out Powder River, and ì logging off the Dakotas.
In Tall Timber Tale, Dell J. McCormick is retelling ì stories he has heard from his early childhood. In later life he ì lived in the lumber camps of the West and heard these stories ì from men whose fathers were the prototype of the incredible Paul ì himself. He has told these stories much as they were related to ì him, with all their childlike simplicity. Reading level 3.5.
