Paperback, 170 pages, AO3.
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 in 1820s Indiana. Their life is very different from ours today. Already familiar with the dangers of frontier life, Balser learns he also has to deal with black bears that are 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! This lively tale is a great read for boys and anyone else who enjoys nature and adventure.
The Bears of Blue River is a living book for nature study, and is not just a great story, but also beautiful to read. This beautiful Australian edition is complete with all the original illustrations by illustrators including A. S. Frost and others, carefully restored for modern printing.
