Tall tales of the giant lumberjack are depicted by narration alternating with folk songs. Baby Paul tore a tree out of the ground, roots and all. At age 18, he was 25 feet tall and weighed 800 pounds. Soon after, Paul began his life’s work: clearing Western forests so that cities might be built. With five axe strokes, Bunyan cleared a 10 mile plot to help a struggling Wisconsin farmer.
