Versatile as always, Jim Weiss is narrator, commentator, and actor in this lively and engaging collection of American tall tales. Characters whose origins can be traced to an actual American, such as Johnny Appleseed, are here, as well as characters who are rooted in the aspirations of immigrants surging westward in a new American nation. Paul Bunyan and Pecos Bill bounce across the country. As Paul outgrows his cradle and Pecos Bill’s father can’t abide neighbors within 50 miles, Weiss delivers the humor and spunk of these larger-than-life Americans and their outrageous antics. Weiss’s alliteration in “The Fastest Draw” will leave the listener chuckling and wanting more. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 04]
