ABSTRACT
The article relates the discovery of maple sugar. According to a Native American legend, the discovery of maple sugar happened by accident: a hunter buried his tomahawk, in anger, into the trunk of a tree which turned out to be a sugar maple. Whatever its actual origins, it is certain that Native Americans taught the European settlers how to make maple sugar.
