In 1783, Sarah Witcher was lost in the woods near Warren, NH. Legend has it that the little girl was protected by a bear until she was rescued a few days later. There have been a couple of books written about this true-story-turned-folktale, including The Bear That Heard Crying by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock and Sarah Witcher's Story by Elizabeth Yates.
