In an enchanted Alaskan forest, join a family of bears as they encounter different perspectives and values, ultimately sharing a common purpose with a salmon and resolving their conflict with a golden-haired trespasser, who learns precious lessons from them as well as from her bald eagle companion about respect, kindness, apologizing, and forgiveness. Hand-carved wooden marionettes bring this story to life with charming literary rhymes, alliterations, and idioms which engage, educate, and amuse. Hand-painted scenery presents the misty fjords and totems of Southeast Alaska in glorious color and authenticity. Opportunities abound to connect this story to ecology and geography, biology, history, and social justice.
