Answer

Since this book is a work of nonfiction, the material available about it generally consists of book reviews instead of literary analysis.  There is also information available about Sam Patch that does not specifically talk about this one book.

To view articles and reviews about this book, follow the link below to our EBSCO databases and search for "sam patch" AND "famous jumper".  Some book reviews will be retrieved. You could expand the search to other materials about Sam Patch by just searching for "sam patch" or "sam patch" AND jump.

If you would like additional information about the person Sam Patch that doesn't discuss this one book, there are other places to look.  In the library there is a book available called America in legend that has a section about Patch, and an entry about him in American national biography.

There are also eBooks that have some information about Patch.  To find them, follow the link below to our eBook collection and search for "sam patch" AND jump.  While he isn't mentioned in the title, you can find sections of a book about him by opening a book's full text, then selecting the "Search Within" option on the top right and searching for sam patch.  For example, try the New Jersey Anthology.
