John Henry and his Mighty Hammer

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Patsy Jensen brings the famous tall tale hero, John Henry, to a new generation. John Henry and his Mighty Hammer is a favorite tall tale hero. We will never know if John Henry ever exisited, but we love to tell the tall tale again and again.

As the story goes, John Henry is a very strong man. He has super strength, a steel-driving man. John Henry was a steel-driver railroad worker who tunnels through the mountains to build the great railroads of the late 1800s.

The Industrial Revolution comes to America. The steam machine is a product of the time. The machine is displacing railroad workers, but many believed the machine could not replace John Henry. One day, John Henry promises his co-workers to win against a steam machine. John Henry wins the race. Unfortunately, John Henry dies.

The tall tale legend entertains children with the story of a mythical man. Also, it tells them what they can accomplish with determination. John Henry keeps his word. Children should keep their word. This children's American folktale teaches an important life lesson.

Share this delightful tall tale with the little one in your life. The slender book is available from Amazon.
