A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
I've been reading Paul Bunyan (the Wadsworth version) to my boys recently, and he's actually from Maine.
I know the Appalachian Trail runs into Maine, but it's not usually considered part of Appalachia from a cultural/historical perspective.
If you're just doing a "non-coastal America" pastiche though, he's fine. The version we're reading has several unusual monsters:
The Agropelter (hides in trees, throws a club to kill people)
Gumberoo (round, very hard skin, carnivorous, always hungry - but extremely vulnerable to fire)
SACRILEGE! Paul Bunyon is Minnesotan. Now, there are some weak claims about him being from Wisconsin or Michigan, and he may have spent some time in the Dakota's. I can humor such mistakes with a polite smile. But Maine? Nonsense!
You have me snorting at such a claim with the power of Babe the Blue Ox in full rage.
