“ Pecos Bill had the strangest and most exciting experience any boy ever had. Jolted off the back of his westward-bound pioneer family's covered wagon, four-year-old Bill is left in the dust by his eighteen wawling and brawling siblings and never-suspecting mom and dad. With lively color and black-and-white illustrations by Laura Bannon, Bowman's PECOS BILL remakes bedrock American myth into a novel complete of high adventure, outrageous fantasy, laughter, and sheer fun. ” A Newbery Honor book in 1938, James Bowman's PECOS BILL is the perfect introduction to a great American comic hero and to the delights of the American tall tale. Raised by coyotes as 1 of their own, Bill retains a natural innocence while making a host of supernatural powers. James Bowman was a fine folklorist and an outstanding storyteller and he relates Pecos Bill's wild deeds in a plainspoken voice that highlights their wonderful swagger and charm. This can be how it all came about. Later he found that he was a human getting and really shortly thereafter became the greatest cowboy of all time. He became a member of a pack of wild Coyotes, and until he was a grown man, believed that his name was Cropear, and that he was a full-blooded Coyote. When he finds out that he is a man, not a coyote, and returns to confront the often inhuman human world, those powers will are available in handy. Bill never uses them maliciously, constantly for good, or simply to amaze and amuse.
