Set in 1820's Indiana, "The Bears of Blue River" follows the adventures of a young boy who lives with his family in a cabin on the bank of the Big Blue River. Their life is very different from ours today.
Already familiar with the dangers of frontier life Balser also has to deal with black bears more aggressive toward humans than most of their species. Read along as Little Balser deals with being lost in the forest, meets the fierce one-eared bear, is nearly caught while dozing near what he thought was a bear skin, and much more.
Complete with all the beautiful illustrations by illustrators including A. S. Frost and others, this edition is not just a great story, but also beautiful to read.
