Summary:
Meet John Henry. Born with a hammer in his hand, he is the greatest steel-drivin' man that ever lived. He's as strong as an ox, as fast as the wind and possesses impeccable aim. Deep in the valleys of West Virginia, John tirelessly clears huge boulders -- often swinging two hammers at once so his coworkers can rest -- and lays hundreds of miles of railroad track with the help of his loyal friend, Willie. John's fierce determination, dignity and extraordinary compassion for his fellow worker not only wins him immeasurable respect and admiration, but also allows him to overcome extraordinary odds as he triumphs over the steel worker's nemesis: the steam drill. Part of the multivolume Greatest American Tall Tales & Legends DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
