B'ar Yarns: Florida Pioneer Stories
B'ar Yarns (Bear Yarns) is a collection of memories of a boy growing up in North Florida in the early 1900's. Eugene Pitts left these stories of pioneer life for those who follow him. He and his brothers experienced adventures children today can only dream of. He thought nothing of riding off into the swamp in the dead of night to hunt raccoons or alligators, and he didn't hesitate to jump on his Texas cow pony and take out after a 2000 pound bull armed with a 12 foot bullwhip. He loved animals and respected nature, leaving these lessons for his descendants and other children who read his story.
