Paul Bunyan is the giant of American folklore, so huge that several states claim him as their own--some say he was born in Michigan, others claim Minnesota, still others, Maine. Daniel Hoffman's Paul Bunyan shows that the hero's origins are more surprising still.
More than another recounting of Paul Bunyan's adventures, this book is a classic of American folklore. First published in 1949, this new edition traces the clues of origin to turn-of-the-century logging camps, to the sparse record of actual folktales, and then to the ways these yarns were repeated, revised, simplified, or distorted.
