Paul Bunyan and
Babe the Blue Ox – American Folktale
When Paul was an adult and
living in Minnesota as the legend goes it was so cold one winter that
the geese flew backwards, the fish moved south, and the snow was blue.
During the night, any word spoken would freeze before any one could
hear what was being said. It is said that everyone had to wait until
the next morning to learn what was said during the night.
out for a walk in the woods during this winter of the Blue Snow. The
snow was up to Paul’s knees and with knowing the size of Paul
this was a very deep deep snow. All of a sudden, he heard a strange
sound that was between a bleat and a snort. He glanced down and saw a
very tiny baby blue ox jumping around in the snow and snorting angrily
since he was too small to see over the large drifts of snow.
began to laugh at the sight and took the baby ox home with him. He
warmed him by the fire, but even after he was completely dry, his fur
was still blue. The cold wet snow had stained his fur. Because of this
fact, Paul named him Babe the Blue Ox.
animal that Paul had his home had the tendency to grow larger than any
other around the area and Babe was no exception. He grew so large that
42 axe handles and a plug of tobacco fit between his eyes. Not only
that, but it took a large amount of crows an entire day to fly from one
of Babe’s horns to the other.
the Blue Ox and Paul worked together every day and in fact, Babe pulled
the heavy tank wagon that was used to coat the lumber roads because of
the ice in winter. However, one day the tank sprang a leak and the
water ran south which created the mighty Mississippi.
