Legend of The Bear That Heard Sarah
The Legend of the Bear That Heard Sarah is
a NH legend based in Warren, NH.
In 1783, a little girl by the name of Sarah Witcher lost
her way in the
woods of Warren, New Hampshire. Sarah was lost for
several days despite the massive search efforts that
have commenced in the area.
As the legend states, Sarah was protected by a
black bear until her rescue.
This is believed to be a true story. As a
result some books were written about Sarah Witcher: The Bear That Heard Crying by Natalie
Kinsey-Warnock and Sarah Witcher's Story by
New Hampshire Legends, Mysteries and Folklore
