With a light Southern twang, Allison Moorer delights the listener with the exploits of Swamp Angel, a woman from the American tradition of tall tales. From her pretentious birth to her quest to capture a bear named Thundering Tarnation, Swamp Angel travels from the countryside of Tennessee to Montana, matching wits with Mother Nature. Viewpoint and textual detail are two of illustrator Zelinsky's hallmarks. Listeners will relish the toe-tapping country music, the sound effects of the feisty bear, taunting male contestants, and Tennessee settler parties. Weston Woods has created a spectacular listening and viewing package with this Caldecott Honor title. A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
