The Lumberjack Folk Hero - Paul Bunyan

Statue of Paul Bunyan in Bangor, Maine

This statue of Paul Bunyan in Bangor Maine faces the Penobscot River to the east where ships from all over the world arrived in Bangor during the 1800's for loads of lumber. There were over 300 sawmills along the Penobscot River in those days feeding the needs of the world. So many large schooners squeezed in the river that a person could simply walk across the ships to get to the city of Brewer on the other side. Even today, the majority of Maine is made up of forests.
