Back to Storytelling Recordings ...


These uproarious American folk stories will have you laughing out loud and pondering. You'll meet Paul Bunyan, taller than the trees and mightier than the rivers; Johnny Appleseed, whose gentle generosity make him a beloved legend; and Pecos Bill, whose outrageous Texas-sized exploits make him the greatest of all cowboys. There's even one of Jim's own tales, a tongue-twisting, hilarious tale of the Old West. The entire family will listen to this recording over and over again.
