Dean, David M. "Meshach Browning: Bear Hunter of Allegany County, 1781-1859." Maryland Historical Magazine 91 (Spring 1996): 73-83.
Annotation / Notes: Meshach Browning was the author of an autobiography, Forty-Four Years of the Life of a Hunter, that might more properly be seen as a tall tale wrapped around the framework of an actual life. Browning (1751-1859) inhabited the frontier in the westernmost part of Maryland that later became Garrett County. He claimed to have killed 400 bears in his career. For those attracted to the stories of Davy Crockett or Paul Bunyon, Meshach Browning's life offers entertaining reading.
