the story is so famous, so it was interesting to find the famous references--babe, rock candy mountain. but all paul wants to do is cut down trees. he's so big that he can cut down thousands every day--a very politically incorrect hero. he cut down all the trees on the prairees and sunk the stumps--that's why there are no trees now! he never meets a native person and he has to kill a lot of animals to feed his crew. who invented this legend?
