From Davy Crockett, Wild Bill Hickok, and Calamity Jane to Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and Frank and Jesse James, here are more than 130 colorful stories of the pioneers, cowboys, outlaws, gamblers, prospectors, and lawmen who settled the wild west, creating a uniquely American hero and an enduringly fascinating folk mythology. In this wonderfully boisterous treasury of tall tales, everyone and everything is larger than life and bragging is elevated into an art form. Many of these stories are of real people and real events; more than a few, however, grew taller and funnier as they made their rounds from wagon train to campfire to rodeo to miners' quarters. But even if it is far from established that Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were able to kill three men with one bullet or subdue ferocious grizzly bears with their fists, they come vividly to life here as beloved characters who have become part of the fabric of the American imagination.

Gustav Schwabs unvergleichliches Werk "Die schönsten Sagen des klassischen Altertums" ist seit jeher ein Bestseller, ein Klassiker und eine der erquickendsten Quellen humanistischer Bildung. In zwölf Sprachen übersetzt und sogar in Chinesisch genießbar, hat dieses Buch den griechischen Göttern und Helden nicht nur Deutschland, sondern ganz Europa sowie halb Asien neu erobert und ihnen die Herrschaft bis heute ungeschwächt erhalten. In erhabener, kraftvoller, gewandter, wortreicher, und dennoch jedem verständlicher Sprache erzählt es Kindern, Jugendlichen und Erwachsenen mit frischer Lebendigkeit von den Taten der Sterblichen und Unsterblichen. In dieser durchgehend farbig bebilderten Ausgabe begegnet neben vielen anderen Berühmtheiten des klassischen Mythos der kluge Prometheus, welchen Zeus an den Fels des Kaukasus hat schmieden lassen, die schöne Europa, welche unserem Erdteil ihren Namen gegeben hat, Orpheus und Eurydike, das berühmteste und tragischste Liebespaar aller Zeiten, oder Sisyphos, der bis zum heutigen Tage vergeblich seinen Stein emporwälzt.
