Way up in Michisota,
Annie's famous far and wide,
Because she roped an avalanche
and took it for a ride.

Told with read-aloud gusto by master rhymesmith Lisa Wheeler and illustrated--with tongue firmly in cheek--by Kurt Cyrus, Avalanche Annie is the wildest, woolliest, most awe-inspiring, and goofiest tall tale since Paul Bunyan hitched up Babe the Blue Ox.
