"It was the year when Jonathan was eight that he went over Hemlock Mountain." Hemlock Mountain was really just a hill. And since he was big for his age, his mother sent him over the mountain by himself. With 20 people coming to their house for stew, Ma needed Jonathan to go over the mountain to borrow Aunt Emma's big iron pot. Jonathan was afraid of bears, but the grown-ups assured him that there were no bears on Hemlock Mountain. Besides, there was snow on the ground, and bears sleep when it's cold. Well . sometimes grown-ups are wrong! This charming tall tale is based on an authentic story from Pennsylvania's State Archivist. Embellished with Alice Dalgliesh's sparkling wit and John McDonough's narrative skill, this book is exceptional entertainment for young listeners. Download and start listening now!
