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.

Paul went 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.

Paul 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.

Every 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.

Babe 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.
