Wieboldt 1 Dennis Wieboldt Ms. Kathleen Doherty English Language and Literature I H 25 November 2015 The Myth of Paul Bunyan (pt. 1) The myth of Paul Bunyan originated in the Midwest of the United States. Over many years, the myth has slightly changed, but overall, the base of the story has stayed the same. As you will read in the following pages, the myth of Paul Bunyan has become as much a nighttime story as an advertising tool for lumber companies all over the United States. As told by those who created the myth, Paul Bunyan lived in a small town in Maine (Myths Encyclopedia). As a baby, he was abnormally strong and large in size because of the extreme amount of food he ate. One mysterious night as he was growing up, the daily snow in Maine turned blue (Learning English). Being the adventurous man he was, Paul went out and to his surprise, found a blue ox that he named Babe. After many years in Maine, he and Babe the blue ox went on a cross country trip to the “lumber lands” in the Pacific Northwest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
