Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 paintings are the perfect match for the irony, exaggeration, and sheer good humor of this original tall tale set on the American frontier.

Caldecott artist Zelinsky puts oils to cherry and maple to create this tall tale about a competition between a Tennessee woodswoman extraordinaire and a hungry, fearsome bear. Full color.

Synopsis:

When Angelica Longrider was born, she was scarcely taller than her mother and couldn't climb a tree without help. She was a full two years old before she built her first log cabin. But by the time she is fully grown, Swamp Angel, as she is known, can lasso a tornado and drink an entire lake dry. She single-handedly saves the settlers from the fearsome bear known as Thundering Tarnation, wrestling him from the top of the Great Smoky Mountains to the bottom of a deep lake in this original tall tale set on the American frontier.
