American mythology has no epic hero whose deeds and achievements can in any way compare with the exploits of the great Pawl Bunyan, the patron saint of the foresters. His fame rests secure in the tales of the thousands of leather-throated lumberjacks who worked under the great Pawl during the bonanza days of the great forests.
