First edition. A 1995 Caldecott Honor Book. A delightful tale illustrated by Caldecott Medalist, Paul O. Zelinsky. Here’s an original American folk-tale about a woman as strong as Paul Bunyan and as undefeatable as John Henry. 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. Caldecott Medal-winning artist Paul O. Zelinsky's stunning folk-art illustrations – painted in oil on maple, cherry, and oak veneers – are the perfect match for the irony, exaggeration, and sheer good humor of this rollicking tale of the American frontier.
