“American tall tales” by Mary Pope Osborne & Michael McCurdy

“This strikingly handsome, oversized volume presents nine all-American figures whose overblown exploits take them from coast to coast and through all manner of occupations and preoccupations. Osborne has chosen familiar fictitious characters–Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan, Febold Feboldson–and actual people, such as Johnny Appleseed and Davy Crockett, and relates episodes that stress the individuals’ human weaknesses as well as strengths.”
