Listen to the legends and lore of the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway

Local people telling stories of everything from the development of walking and biking trails to working in a resort kitchen in the 1930's to famous explorers who mapped the Whitefish Chain and even a true story about cows drunk on moonshine.

Copywriter and voice artist, Dave Skyberg introduces this 37-minute podcast, weaving his burly voice of Paul Bunyan throughout. Truly a bold Bunyan-style performance! Thanks to the generous support from KLKS 104.3 FM Radio in Breezy Point PBSBA was able to professionally record these oral histories.
