"Back some time ago when folks still had to worry about giants and wild unicorns and such, there was an old woman and her son, Jack."
So begins this tall tale from the heart of Appalachia about Jack, a boy who goes out to seek his fortune (accompanied by his faithful, although somewhat cowardly, hound) and winds up face-to-face with some pretty ornery critters!
How Jack manages to overcome each varmint one by one -- without even meaning to! -- is the heart of this funny, boisterous story from an award-winning artist.

In this Appalachian folktale, Jack wins fame and fortune after killing ten jellow jackets with one whack.
