Bunyan and Banjoes is an enchanting potpourri of folklore, songs, Indian legends, recipes, history, and other Michigan-based activities. This volume includes stories about how maple sugar is made; the history of the early fur trade, mining logging, and automobile industries; the building of the Mackinac Bridge and the Soo Locks; the sad loss of the steamer ""Chicora""; as well as several songs adapted to sign language. This charming collection is brought to vivid life by Kitty Donohoe's songs and writings and Pasqua Warstler's delightful illustrations, puzzles and mazes which are designed to delight both adults and children alike. Originally a collection of songs about Michigan written by Kitty Donohoe to honor Michigan's 150th birthday celebration, the songs became the first edition of Bunyan and Banjoes, which was an immediate success. Learned and performed by school children all over Michigan, they are often thought to be traditional songs. Whether about lumberjacks, voyageurs or rollicking young sailors, they embrace the spirit of this Great Lakes State. Bunyan and Banjoes is available in several formats: Paper, Paper with Cassette, Paper with CD, and Cassette only.
