Cut from the Same Cloth: American Women of Myth, Legend, and Tall Taleby Robert D San Souci
Synopses & Reviews
This collection of American folktales spans the U.S. with 15 stories of larger-than-life women, from Molly Cottontail, who can outwit any critter in the woods, to Hekeke, who slays a giant single-handedly.
Have you heard of the Star Maiden, Old Sally Cato, or Sweet Betsey from Pike?
Everyone knows about Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, and Davy Crockett. But have you heard of these larger-than-life women? From Bess Call, who wrestles any and all challengers, to Molly Cottontail, who can outwit any critter in the woods, to Hekeke, who slays a giant single-handedly, here are fifteen funny, stormy, vivid, and always entertaining tall tales of legendary American women. They're as different as can be, but still cut from the same cloth.
