Tall Timber Tales

Category: Social Studies (NW)

Copyright/published Year: by Caxton Press

ISBN: 0-87004-094-4

A companion volume to Paul Bunyan Swings his Axe, this book contains twenty-one more tall tales of the giant logger and his Blue Ox, Babe. The stories of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox come straight from the heart of America. These stories are told from the rolling woods of Maine to the timberlands of Washington, from the cypress swamps of the South to the redwoods of California. Behind the Paul Bunyan legends is the epic of men of the woods whose vigor and energy were nothing less than heroic. The adventures of the exploits of these colorful characters whose deeds in real life are almost incredible. Told first on winter nights around bunkhouse stoves in the lumber camps, these tall tales will long remain in legends of America with wildly imaginative drama of such whopping good lies as Paul's dredging Puget Sound, straightening out Powder River, and logging off the Dakotas.

In Tall Timber Tale, Dell J. McCormick is retelling stories he has heard from his early childhood. In later life he lived in the lumber camps of the West and heard these stories from men whose fathers were the prototype of the incredible Paul himself. He has told these stories much as they were related to him, with all their childlike simplicity. Reading level 3.5.
