Day 25: This here’s a tale of Johnny

Meet Johnny Kaw, Kansas’ answer to Paul Bunyan.

Johnny’s a tall drink of water, coming in at over 30 feet tall. He’s the pioneer wheat farmer of Kansas and he was born in 1966, 11 years after author George Fillinger created him in a series of stories and ink drawings for the Manhattan Centennial. Today he abuts a large park and playground, watching over the children as carefully as he watched over the waving wheat.
