As American as Appleless Pie!

NOTHING IS MORE American than the humble apple pie. There’s even an old saying to prove it: “as American as apple pie.” So it may come as a surprise that many early settlers who forged the trails of our expanding nation were often without apples to make this most American of desserts. As pioneers headed west in pursuit of territory and gold, they had to leave many things behind, including apples. Not only did life on the trail make fresh fruit like apples hard to carry and keep, apple trees were native only to the east coast, which made finding apples in the West nearly impossible.

The Man Who Built A Better Leg

THE CIVIL WAR was only a few weeks old when seven hundred and fifty Confederate recruits gathered in the fields around Philippi, Virginia. It was early June 1861, and as yet there had been no real battles. The men had eagerly volunteered, but most had no training as soldiers. Their only weapons were the ones they brought from home— old-fashioned flintlock muskets, cap and ball pistols, and a few shotguns.

Percy Plumb, Cowboy

PART TWOPercy Plumb has always wanted to be a cowboy like his great-uncle Radcliffe. He loves stories about the Old West and wranglers named Dusty and Smokey Joe. He daydreams about riding the range on a flashy pinto with one blue eye and one brown eye, or maybe a quick, coal-black mustang.Instead of a cowpoke, though, he’s a librarian in the town of Mayfair, which boasts a broad green park, a Main Street of shops and cafés, and one remaining farm: Treadwell’s Dairy with its pastures of spotted cows.One day Miss Peabody from the Humane Society posts a flier in the library. “WANTED: A Loving Home for Bob,” reads the poster. Percy peers at the photo of a horse who has gotten his face too close to the camera. His nose looks very large, and on that nose is a big white spot like a headlight. Percy’s thoughts begin to dwell less on books and more on Bob.Several weeks later Miss Peabody returns. No one has adopted the horse, and the Humane Society can’t afford to keep him any longer. “But what will happen to Bob?” Percy asks. Miss Peabody hesitates. “I’d rather not say,” she admits. To his surprise, Percy blurts out that he has a shed and a meadow behind his bungalow. Bob could stay there. Miss Peabody squeals with delight, and after that, things happen quickly. Bob is to be delivered Saturday morning.

The Bushwhackers

Papa’s off fighting for the Yankees when Bill Wilson and his gang of Missouri bushwhackers descend upon the McBrides. Mama, Aunt Lula, and Josey watch helplessly as the men ransack the farmhouse. Bill grabs Josey’s school lunchpail but flings it away when he discovers it’s full of snapping crawdads. Josey had planned to put a big ol’ crawdad in her sister Dora’s bed. When two of the bushwhackers pour some of Mama’s molasses into a ceramic pot they found in the yard, Josey’s eyes almost pop out of her head. The pot is the slop jar Dora has been using to relieve herself while laid up with a bad cold. Josey, disgusted at having to empty it, had purposely left the pot in the yard so Dora would have to use the outdoor privy.

Tamitha And The Dragon

TAMITHA WAS ALREADY high in the air by the time she realized a dragon had snatched her. She’d been moseying along the road, making up a poem about pasta in her head, when the creature swooped down from the clouds, all bulging red muscles and sharp scales. The dragon flapped his enormous batwings, wrapped his bronze claws around her, and took off into the sky before Tamitha could think of a word that rhymed with“linguine.”
