Bunyan is a myth, or folk tale. He was a very large lumber jack. Most
of the tales about him revolve around his size and his best friend,
Babe the Blue Ox. They said that Paul had grown out of his father’s
clothes by the time he was one week old and that the tracks he and
Babe made running around Minnesota made the 10,000 lakes.
