Tall Tales from a Southwestern Storyteller

by Joe Hayes
Not currently available.

Do you know what a tall tale is? Well if you don't, you better catch these clever stories on audio tape. Some of these tales are even taller than Joe Hayes! Like, did you ever hear of a dog that knows how to play checkers? (Hes really not that smart: he loses more times than he wins.)
