Description

Growing up without parents and without schooling, 14-year-old Cloyd is trouble-trouble to himself and everyone else. Sent by his tribe to a home for Indian boys, he is alone and half-wild in remote Utah canyons. As his feeling of isolation turns to desperation, he runs away to find even more trouble. When Cloyd is found and taken to live with an old rancher, he begins to explore the countryside. High in the majestic Colorado mountains, he finds a small carved turquoise bear in an Indian burial cave. Secretly renaming himself Lone Bear, Cloyd calls upon his ancient ancestors to give him the courage to accept an old man's love and friendship. Bearstone is an IRA/CBC Teachers Choice Book, and a Notable Children's Trade Book in the field of Social Studies. It also won the Mountain & Plains Booksellers Association Children's Book Award. Veteran narrator George Guidall masterfully grasps Will Hobbs' award-winning story.

Professional reviews

""Live in a good way" is an ancient Ute saying, which permeates this beautiful story of Cloyd's coming of age as he experiences white man's cruelty and humanity to Native Americans. Cloyd is 14 and troubled--he's matched up with Walter, a former rancher who's lonely and depressed after losing his wife. The ever-wonderful George Guidall relates the story like an old-time storyteller. He makes Walter, an old fellow filled with wisdom and sage expressions, sound as if he's addressing Cloyd and reader alike. It's possible to hear Cloyd evolve as he grows up, experiences a bear hunt, makes adult decisions, and learns and teaches the lessons of life. The award-winning story couldn't be improved in its audio presentation. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
