Gentle Ben

Realistic Fiction / 10 Days

(Not Sold Individually)

The Alaskan wilderness is a lonely place for Mark Andersen, especially after the death of his older brother, Jamie. But in time Mark finds someone else to love–Ben, an Alaskan brown bear so huge that no one else dares come near him. Ben and Mark form a special bond, but the townspeople are determined to destroy it. It is only through the strength of an enduring friendship that Ben-and Mark-have a chance of being saved.
