In an enchanted Alaskan forest, join a family of bears as they encounter different perspectives and values. They ultimately share a common purpose with a salmon and resolve their conflict with a golden-haired trespasser. She 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. Opportunities abound to connect this story to ecology and geography, biology, history, and social justice.
