Circa: 1991
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
ISBN: 0-679-80089-1

Alfred A. Knopf, N.Y. published this 1991 Mary Pope Osborne book which retells the stories of both real and fantasy characters of 19th century America. Davy Crockett and Johnny Appleseed (Chapman) were for real individuals while Sally Ann Thunder, Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Paul Bunyan were Folk Heroes who lived only in the imagination and hand me down stories of others.

Throughout its 115 pages, Mary Pope Osborne’s hardcover book offers up historical notes on the characters whose stories she’s retelling. This volume of tall tales is a humorous and entertaining look at these real-life and fantasy individuals. The colored wood block engravings by Michael McCurdy enhance the story line and complement the 19th century time frame for these rugged characters.

This book, ISBN# 0-679-80089-1, is in very good+ to near mint condition. There are no rips, tears, or markings on its pages, and it has both a sturdy spine and an intact dust jacket.
