Fiction. "Paul Bunyan, Mike Fink, and Pecos Bill, move over. This collection of tall tales from the Adirondack Liars' Club presents a new, fresh view of American folklore. A delightful collection of tall tales, puns, and outrageous stories. Ward's introduction connects the social custom of telling lies in the Adirondack lumber camps with the older traditions of storytelling and bragging in cultures as old as ancient Greece and Rome. Highly entertaining in themselves, the techniques reflected in the stories include puns, illogical sequences of events, outright lies, and tall tales on the order of Paul Bunyan. Recommended for folktale, anthropology, and history collections"-Booklist.
