    The United States is, relatively speaking, a new country; the colonies from which it sprung were settled by Europeans in the seventeenth century, and it gained independence only in the late eighteenth century. Despite this relative youth, the country has been host to a rich tradition of folklore and tall tales. This begs the question: if the country's fate had turned out differently, what would have this storytelling tradition have looked like? What stories would be told in these other Americas?
