Exploring the Bear River Game Reserve, young Mark
Wedloe stumbles upon a baby bear cub. Suddenly, confronted
by its angry mother, he climbs to the safety of a tree.
As the bear approaches her cub, she is killed by Fog
Hanson, a hunter. Unaware of Mark's presence. Fog takes
the cub. The next day, Mark discovers the bear cub
concealed in Fog's waterfront shack. Sneaking in to feed
the cub, he befriends him and names him Ben. Months later,
when Mark overhears Fog talking about killing the bear,
now fully grown, he becomes desparate and takes the bear
to the safety of the woods. When Mark's mother, Ellen,
finds him with the bear she demands that he take Ben
back. Later, Mark convinces his father, Tom, to
purchase the 650-pound American black bear.

Stories depict Tom's experiences as a game warden in
The Florida Everglades; and the adventures shared by
an eight-year-old boy and his lovable pet bear.
