Description
A classic of humor and folklore, Tall Tale America is a vernacular history of America which has as its chief figures not presidents, military leaders, and tycoons, but folk heroes and popular characters such as Davy Crockett, Old Stormalong, Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan, and John Henry. Blair recounts such momentous events as the temporary misplacement of America and the unfreezing of the earth, and such frequently overlooked incidents as the invention of the prairie dog and Windwagon Smith's upsetting arrival in Westport, Missouri.
