Tallest object in the monumental western landscape, Paul Bunyan stands with an uprooted tree slung easily over his left shoulder. There are mountains behind him and cliffs beside him. A broad smile graces his small head. His huge hands grasp the tree trunk as it balances on his enormous shoulders. The rough overshirt that Bunyan wears has pulled out of his pants and flaps raggedly in the wind. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
