    One thought on “Pecos Bill: The Greatest Cowboy of All Time”

    1. I remember, many a year ago, reading about Pecos Bill riding a cyclone like it was a bronco. The story was featured in a section about Tall Tales in our school reading text book. I loved the story back then, and I enjoyed it again now along with all the other "tall tales" in this book. Perhaps I love these stories given the knack my grandfather had for telling his own stories about his father in the old days (late 1800's) on the plains of Nebraska. Whatever the reason, I've always loved the old [...]

    2. I generally love folktales, tall tales, legends, fairytales, and anything else that might be at home in the 398.2 section of the library. So being bored by this book was a real surprise for me. Pecos Bill should not be boring - he is larger than life and full of surprises! Maybe it was the writing style or the pacing or the so very much that went unsaid and unexplained. If you want Pecos Bill stories, I would recommend looking elsewhere. I would only recommend this one to Newbery completists or [...]

    3. Pecos Bill: The Greatest Cowboy of All Time is a book that was published in 1937. It also received the title of Newberry Honor Book. 70 years later, New York Review Books brought this classic back into print, much to my delight. The book begins with an introduction by the author that explains that these book is folklore. That means that while there may be bits of truth in these stories, they are tall tales for the most part, which were a big part of American literature.The book begins with young [...]

    4. This 1938 Newberry Honor Book is a compilation Pecos Bill stories. From an American Folklore standpoint the book is interesting, albeit, a little offensive in parts. Depiction of reservations and Native Americans is particularly troubling. However, this book may be useful for critical discussions about the west as well as for some of the tall tales contained within. Grades 3-8P: Relates some of the legends of Pecos Bill, from the moment he bounced out of his family's covered wagon to the day his [...]

    5. Not a huge fan of Tall Tale stories and this is no exception. I read it because it won a Newbery Honor. The book is not very considerate in the wording it chooses to describe the treatment of Native Americans by the US government…almost as if people native to this land were responsible for others crowding in on them. For example, “The American Indians of the Southwest, of course, entirely misunderstood was happening. They had, for centuries, been accustomed to prey on the buffalo, and now th [...]

    6. Oh my goodness I thought this book was stupid. Almost every page was filled with tall-tales and Pecos Bill worship. And then they did sort of creation-type myths with him like the reason we have the Grand Canyon, Butte Falls in Montana, etcD the book it also fairly racist. You don't see it often, but when the Indians are mentioned it is about the same as animals. You can even find the 'Indian herds' on their reservations.And lastly, the author seems to be putting quite a bit of disrespect for th [...]

    7. Read the full review here: newberyandbeyond/newbery-rI really didn’t care for this book. I’m not a fan of mythology and tall tales, as a general rule, and this book wasn’t an exception to that rule. Add to that the casual racism and sexism that comes with many of the older Newbery books, and you come up with a book that I had to force myself to finish. Unless you or your kid is obsessed with American tall tales, maybe don’t bother.

    8. 1938 Newbery Honor BookI was really hoping to enjoy this book since I love the Disney short about Pecos Bill and I generally enjoy folklore but.is book was so uninteresting! The stories rambled on and on.

    9. Good book. You know the saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover"? Don't judge this book by it's cover. The inside of the book was WAY more interesting than the outside I must say;) The outside looked so boring to me that I almost didn't read it! I'm glad I changed my mind.

    10. Just finished reading this to my daughter. A wonderful piece of Americana. Thank you NYRB for putting it back in print.

    11. What an incredible tale! I loved these stories as a child and revisiting them as an adult brought me back to those days.

    12. Bowman does a good job with the tall tale of Pecos Bill, making a mythical American demigod to rival Hercules and Theseus, with talents and personality as large as the American west.
