In Bearstone, 14-year-old Cloyd Atcitty watched as a hunter killed what he thought was the last grizzly bear in Colorado. In this sequel, Cloyd continues his quest to find grizzlies in the mountains. Exploring the Weminuche Wilderness, Cloyd finds a pair of orphaned grizzly cubs. He must draw on his courage, determination, and Ute Indian heritage to teach them how to live in the wild. With winter approaching and food growing scarce, Cloyd must not only ensure the survival of the bears, but return to civilization before starvation and cold kill him. Will Hobbs lives in southwestern Colorado, where he spends much of the year in the mountains, exploring new settings for his books. Beardance is a winner of the Golden Spur Award for Juvenile Fiction, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, and an ABA Pick of the Lists.
