  • Johnny Kaw: The Pioneer Kansas Wheat Farmer  According to tall tale accounts, Kansas was logged off by Paul Bunyan before Johnny and his family arrived, and Paul had long since headed back to Minnesota. However, after Johnny planted Kansas full of wheat, Paul came back to see what had become of the land. Johnny didn't take kindly to Bunyan tromping down his wheat so he had quite a fight with the other big fellow. He got the best of him and chased him south, where his brother Jim got a hold of the logger and used his nose to plow the Mississippi River Bed.
