Description

The "Rabbit Ears Treasury of American Tall Tales" features the larger-than-life characters of America's favorite folk stories--read by your favorite stars and featuring original music by some of today's greatest artists. "Davy Crockett" Read by Nicolas Cage Original Music by David Bromberg Follow the escapades of America's ultimate backwoods hero as he travels the frontier in his trademark coonskin cap in search of adventure and brags his way into history at the Battle of the Alamo. "Rip Van Winkle" Read by Anjelica Huston Original Music by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason This Washington Irving classic tells the story of likeable but lazy Rip Van Winkle, who shared a strange brew with some mysterious strangers and fell into a deep sleep for 20 years. He discovers when he finally wakes that things are considerably different than he remembers, providing a cautionary tale about making the most of life. "Johnny Appleseed" Read by Garrison Keillor Original Music by Mark O'Connor Here is the touching tale of the good-natured naturalist who traveled through the Ohio Valley in the early 1800s planting apple orchards, making friends, and spreading goodwill. Walk the miles with this barefoot explorer who never met an apple pie he didn't like. "Paul Bunyan" Read by Jonathan Winters Original Music by Leo Kottke with Duck Baker The larger-than-life lumberjack swaggers through the forests of North America with his faithful companion, Babe the Blue Ox, by his side. Hear about the pancake griddle that's over an acre wide and the truly tall tale of how the Great Lakes and Grand Canyon were created.show more
