What a fabulous tall-tale, and this time it's aimed at the young ladies in the group. Angelica Longrider is our heroine. Not much to talk about at birth - no, she was barely taller than her mother and "couldn't climb a tree without help." But what lies ahead is a glorious, whoopin' and hollerin' life of wrestling and roping and outsmarting the biggest bear anyone has ever seen. The illustrations are filled with joy and delightful detail. Find the heron on Bear Island. I predict you'll read it again and again. This is a 1995 Caldecott Honor award winner.
