Publisher's Summary

Swamp Angel can lasso a tornado, and drink an entire lake dry. She single-handedly defeats the fearsome bear known as Thundering Tarnation, wrestling him from the top of the Great Smoky Mountains to the bottom of a deep lake. Irony, exaggeration, and sheer good humor are the ingredients of this original tall tale, set on the American frontier.

Tall Tale is a Winner!

This has become my favorite tall tale of all time! My kids, 9 and 12, loved this as much as I did. The folk art illustrations are perfect - you can get lost for days in all the artistic details and visual jokes. We are Tennesseans and the audio version is spot-on fun from the hills of TN (we know folks who really do say "barr" for "bear"!) Great match up of story, art, and audio.
