6/30: entering an american myth

I've never read the original Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but I'm reading it now.  I'm enjoying a new-to-me Oz that's different from the one I know from the film version.  So far, I especially like the Tin Woodman--in the novel, there's a story about why he has no heart.  I won't spoil it here...but he wasn't always tin.
