Tremendously Tall Tales is a collection of four beloved American folk tales: Paul Bunyan the Lumberjack, Mike Fink the River Roarer, John Henry the Railroad Man, and Johnny Appleseed the Planter of Orchards. The frame of Tales is a story of a rag tag theater troupe crisscrossing the Midwest at the beginning of the century, called Eddie B. Brown’s All-Star Yokels. Tales is full of pratfalls, sight gags and hat-tricks in the hilarious physical style of vaudeville.
