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. Download and start listening now!

    " Cloyd is placed into another house. The man is old and loves the memories of his wife. Through their adventures to the mine and learning to care about people, the story makes a full circle with peach trees. "

    " This is one of the Big Read books we are currently reading at school. It is a coming of age story about an American Indian boy named Cloyd who is sent from the remote Utah canyons to Colorado and eventually to work for an old rancher. I recognized the area of Colorado this book was set in, and also appreciated the reference to the presumed last Grizzly Bear which was displayed in a museum in Denver (formerly displayed in Canon City I think). Besides my connection to it geographically I enjoyed the story of a young man learning about what is means to forgive and repent. "
