American Fairy Tales | L Frank Baum

The beloved author of "The Wizard of Oz" wrote many other stories throughout his career. This is a collection of American Fairy Tales that should be a part of his literary legacy.

The European fairy tale tradition is so strong that few associate "fairy tale" with American stories and storytellers, despite the rich and enduring output of their most successful creator, L. Frank Baum. Most are familiar with "tall tales" and characters like Paul Bunyan and John Henry -- these are of course fairy tales as well, of a peculiarly American stamp. With stories ranging from "The King of the Polar Bears" to "The Capture of Father Time," this book is bound to please readers of all ages.
