The Arkansaw Bear: A Tale of Fanciful Adventure Told in Song and Story
Albert Bigelow Paine
Albert Bigelow Paine (July 10, 1861 – April 9, 1937) was a noted American author and biographer of Mark Twain. He wrote southern folktales and used lyrics of “The Arkansas Traveler” as inspiration for his story of the Arkansaw Bear : A Tale of Fanciful Adventure.
Horatio the bear does not know all the words to the folk-song "The Arkansas Traveler" so his friend Bo helps him finish it. What they don’t know, they make up as they go.
