Paul Bunyan is one of the most famous characters in North American folklore. He and his companion, “Babe the Blue Ox,” are featured in tall tales of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bunyan was a lumberjack of great size and skill, rumored to be so tall that “his footsteps created the Great Lakes. He “dragged his axe and made the Grand Canyon.” Today, Bunyan’s legend is commemorated by numerous statues across the upper Midwest and far-beyond.
