  • I remember when Ben Michaelson would come over for dinner and tell stories of his rescue bear Buffy. It certainly put this novel in context with his values and 13-year old alter ego!


  • This is a decent adventure story that will appeal to that difficult-to-reach tween boy age group. Thirteen-year-old Josh is on a reluctant hunting trip with his father, an angry alcoholic. While under the influence of drink, Josh’s father shoots a mother bear and orphans her cub. Josh defies his father’s wishes and rescues the cub—but it seems the little animal is out of the kettle and into the fire. The Fish and Game Dept. wants to take possession of the cub and send him to a biological r [...]

Joshs dad shoots a mother bear and orphans a bear cub. Josh wants to save the bear cub. His father says that they can't keep the bear cub so Josh runs away. When I read the book I thought the book was really good. I would recommend this book to everybody that like the outdoors. I felt they should of made the book bigger so you [...]



  • Well written Juvenile Fiction for 10 to 15 year old depending on his or her reading level. Brings real world problems to life.


  • Yes, I finally read another book! Can you even believe it? Albeit it is a elementary level book, I still can count it off as a completed task, the first of this school year for me! My kids' principal loaned me this book (last yearbut who is counting?) for one of the kids to read. Instead of them reading it, I took it upon myself to complete it, as this story takes place in Montana, and the author has a home in Bozeman. A few years back, I guess this author visited our school which made quite an [...]


  • I chose this book because when i read the back it said that Josh's older brother had died and after that incident his father started drinking more and became an alcoholic. The book starts when Josh and his dad are hunting in the mountains. Josh's father, Sam, shoots a bear, but doesn't notice that it had a cub. As they are about to sleep Josh cannot because he's worried about the lonesome cub that will have no one to take care of it. He goes out in the dark to find the bear cub and has some luck [...]


  • This is a story about adventure and protecting a bear cub that I'm glad I didn't pass up although it's a book for kids. Josh flees to the mountains with his dog and a bear cub on a dirt bike to keep the orphaned bear cub from being taken by the Montana Fish and Game Department to be used for lab experiments. After Josh's older brother died, Josh's father became an alcoholic and accidentally shot the cub's mother when hunting with his son but wouldn't admit it. It's a very good story about the di [...]


  • Exciting book about a boy who rescues a baby bear after its mother is killed, and how he runs away to the mountains to hide with the bear rather than see it be used for testing in a lab. Josh wants spring bear hunting to be outlawed, because so many cubs become orphaned as a result. He's also dealing with the death of his older brother, and how that has changed his father into a drunken angry man.


  • This was Mikaelsen's first book for children. I wondered this as I began reading it because it lacks the polish of some of his newer work; however, I enjoyed this story of courage and a boy who does the right thing no matter what. Mikaelsen's characters are not as well developed as some of his newer novels, but I enjoyed Brewster's and Otis's characters. This story brought tears to my eyes several times, but it also has a hopeful and happy message.


  • My review for this book is pretty much the same as my review for Sparrow Hawk Red. They're fun, exciting, fast reads that will encourage kids who don't like reading to read. Beyond that, there's not a ton left to say. This one is a survival story, and I think those especially appeal to young readers.


  • What a great book! We are reading this for our ward's book club and it is super. I don't agree with everything in the book but it is realistic. I can see a 13 year old like Josh run away for something he believes in. The book has a good message: Stand up for what you know is right and always admit when you've made a mistake.


  • I loved this book. It had many challenging words throughout the duration of the book. I had to read a fiction book for a book report and i wanted to read an adventure book so i choose this one. It was such a good book that i have read it 4 times since i returned it last. I finished the bnook in 3 1/2 days and finished my report 2 weeks before it was due. thats how intriging this book was.


  • This author lives in Bozeman, MT and actually has his own bear. His stories fall into the adolescent lit. category where the teen becomes something of an extraordinary hero. I enjoyed all his books in middle school and I remember when he came to our library to do a talk and a book signing. It was really my first time meeting a real live author who's book I'd already read.


  • I enjoyed reading this book and it was a heartwarming story about a boy named Josh and the bear he rescues and Josh names him Pokey and then Josh runs away from home with his dog Mudflap and Pokey the bear.


  • This Book is about a 12 year old kid who's dad shoots a black bear and orphans its cub. Josh runs away untill they change hunting laws. And the cub will go to the game commision and run test and then kill it.






  • Best young-adult adventure EVER! I'm sure this will be coming soon to a theater near you. Read it before Hollywood destroys it. I read this aloud to my students every year, and they all loved it.



  • A little heavy-handed with the father's alcohol abuse, but another good Mikaelson (and a convincing argument not to run away from home in a snowstorm)


  • When the child knows what's right and wrong better than the adults, it can be a great learning story for middle grades.


  • Its about a boy who cares about animals and wants to run away to save a bear cub, his father is drunk, and his brother is dead. Its a sad but adventurous book!


  • I thought that this book was good. It was a little sad at some parts, but it was a good story. I think some people would like reading this book, but not everyone.


  • this book is kind of weird but i love the fact the josh has the courage to defy his father, save the bear cub, and elude the whole world while doing it. i love josh!!!(not really) (:
