Sadly what takes away from this book is the fact that you know these are tall tales upfront so it is like knowing the punch line of a joke before it is told. Otherwise they are clever and witty while there was one of them that I had already heard before but it didn't take away from its retelling.

What makes this book special to me is that Rick Steber was able to so richly capture what helps to make the stories what they are. You get the right accent and the right voice in your head as you read these stories so it like hearing the storyteller face-to-face instead of just reading it. And there is a rich variety since the storyteller isn't the same from one story to the next.

I would like to be able to get a chance to get the whole series and see how they all fit together, especially this one. In the meantime this is a good book to add to your Americana collection if you are one who likes to hear about the tall tales like Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, etc. or your Americana Classics such as "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Headless Horseman".
