Legendary Primer - P is for Pecos Bill

Brian Ness

It's time for another American Legend - Pecos Bill, who was raised by coyotes, used a snake as a lasso, and ate dynamite for breakfast! Pecos Bill, it has been said, saddled up to a tornado one day. He shot all of the stars in the sky, except for one - the Lone Star. His girlfriend, Slue Foot Sue, rode from town to town on a giant catfish, while Bill preferred to ride on his horse, WidowMaker.

Pecos Bill has become one of the American Tall Tales, and is oftentimes grouped together with stories like Paul Bunyan and John Henry.
