Ben Mikaelsen is the award-winning author of many books for children, including Petey, Countdown, Rescue Josh McGuire, Stranded, and Sparrow Hawk Red. He lives in Bozeman, Montana.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-8-- Out hunting, 13-year-old Josh watches in horror as his drunk father illegally shoots a mother bear, orphaning its cub. To prevent it from being seized (and probably destroyed) by the authorities, the boy heads for the mountains on his deceased brother's motorcycle with the cub and his dog, leaving a note that he won't return until there's a state law to protect the bears. His experiences alternate with the tense efforts of dedicated search and rescue teams to find him. Many people become involved in his mission and survival, from the governor to citizens who support Josh's crusade. The relationship between his parents, idyllic before the death of his brother and now jeopardized by his father's alcoholism, is sensitively wrought; however, the portrait of the fish-and-game administrator defending the rights of the hunter is darkly villainous, especially in comparison with the heroic environmental types. Because the length of the book may put off some readers, entice them with the jacket photo of the author with his 500-pound black bear. --Susan F. Marcus, Pollard Middle School, Needham, MA
