The frozen flames and the log jam – American Folktale

Frozen Flames

Paul Bunyan dug Lake Michigan as a drinking hole for his Blue Ox, Babe one winter. Sometime after this, he chose to camp out in the Upper Peninsula. This was one of the coldest winters on record with the temperature dropping to 68 degrees below zero in the evening hours. The flames in lanterns had frozen solid and even Paul Bunyan could not blow one out.

The lumberjacks were having a hard sleeping because of the bright light from the lanterns, so they decided to move the lanterns as far away from the bunkhouse as possible. When Spring came to the area, the lumberjacks had forgotten about the lanterns that were placed outside the camp and they started to thaw. Once they began to thaw, they set Northern Michigan on fire. Paul Bunyan stamped out the fire with his mighty boots.

Log Jam

During Spring of one year, loggers found a very large log jam on the Wisconsin River that had never been discovered before. The logs were piled one on top of the other and reached two hundred feet in the air and the jam was over a mile upriver. The loggers began to chop and haul away the logs as fast as they could, however, the jam did not move at all. They then called on Paul Bunyan to help them.

Paul along with Babe the Blue Ox looked over the log jam. Paul asked the loggers to stand back out of the way. Babe went into the river in front of the log jam and Paul began to shoot his rifle, peppering Babe with shot. Babe thought this peppering feeling was a breed of fly that enjoyed bothering him from to time; he began to swish his tail back and forth.
    
This caused the water in the river to begin flowing upstream taking the logs with it. Slowly, the log jam broke loose and Paul pulled Babe from the river. After Babe was back on the shoreline, the river and the logs began again to float downstream the way it was meant.
