Tony Beaver is a character in several tall tales, often in tandem with stories of Paul Bunyan.[1] Beaver was a West Virginian woodsman located up Eel River, often described as a cousin of Paul Bunyan, and champion griddle skater of the southern United States.[2] The stories appeared in print in the early 20th century and were later compiled by Mary E. Cober.[3]
