The Real Johnny AppleseedBook - 1995
The tale of American folk hero Johnny Appleseed has become a story that can't quite be believed yet can't quite be forgotten. He has inspired books, poems, songs, paintings, statues, plays, and festivals for nearly one hundred fifty years. In some accounts, Johnny Appleseed is an imaginary, raggedy, simple-minded wanderer in a tin mush-pot hat. In others, he is larger that life-a swaggering superhero who leapt icy rivers in his bare feet and crossed the American continent flinging seeds over his shoulders. None of these images are true.
