    1. This adventure novel, in which the protagonist must work to survive and save cubs of a killed mother bear, will appeal to the most reluctant teen reader who enjoys the outdoors or a good adventure.


    2. Excellent. A few questions remain up in the air that are left up to the reader to figure out or hope that happened. These pertain mostly to the scene with avalanche and Rusty, Walter Landis' prospector friend, the game wardens and who sabotaged the camp.




    3. "Cloyd sprang from the boulder and leaped onto the elk trail at the edge of the boulder field, not thirty feet away from the black bear.From all fours he stood up and made himself tall with his height and his arms.From deep in his throat he brought out a roar that surprised him, hearing it come from inside himself. For a moment he even felt ferocious, growling and displaying his grizzly claws."Cloyd Rides into the mountains with his friend Walter to look for a lost gold mine, Cloyd hears a repor [...]


    4. Cloyd is a curious young adult that gets thrown at a simple journey to the mountains with his friend, Walter. The purpose of this journey begins from Walter's dream: finding a lost Spanish gold mine. The two friends embark on their journey to the mountains immediately and begin to hear more about the place they are in from other people and their own knowledge. In addition, they learn that among the grand multitude of animals that surround the mountains are the last Grizzlies on earth. Cloyd sepa [...]


    5. This was our read aloud book and the boys really liked it. J especially was really into the outdoor adventure and close animal contact. A young Native American boy goes with his caretaker into the mountains to look for gold and find something even more rare; Grizzly bears- a mama and two cubs. Surely these are the offspring of the large bear he saw the summer before that died at the hands of another mountain man. The bear he had a hand in killing when he told others that he saw it. Riddled with [...]


    6. In my opinion, the story "Beardance" by Will Hobbs was a great book. I thought this was a great book because of the adventure that Cloyd Attcity embarks on. He starts out looking for a mine, but ends up "becoming a mother bear." Throughout the book, he acts and dresses as the mother bear for the two cubs because their mother died in an avalanche. I thought it was great how he led them and taught them how to be bears, even though he's not a bear himself. He even has to save them from being caught [...]


    7. Nature vs. Modenization - I wasn't too excited to read it. I got it at the end of the school year when my library was giving away their old books. However, it's a lovely tale about an orphaned Native American boy trying to find his roots within nature. It starts off slow and has characters that are flawlessly introduced and that all a purpose in the story. I found no trouble reading it without reading Bearstone, the first novel. It had its dull moments but the book has a great message -- I'll le [...]


    8. The sequel to Bearstone. Cloyd is still living in Colorado with Walter Landis. They head back into the mountains to look for gold and discover a mother grizzly and her cubs. Cloyd is still haunted by the death of the grizzly he feels he caused last year. When the mother grizzly is killed in a freak accident, Cloyd is determined to stay with the cubs until they are old enough to den. But winter is deepening in the mountains, can Cloyd or the cubs survive? Another Hobbs masterpiece.


    9. "You know, Cloyd, your San Juans are the biggest stretch of wilderness south of Yellowstone. There’s room for grizzlies here. That’s why a few of them have been able to survive here for forty years after everyone thought they were gone.
"This young adult novel is a survival story with strong conservation messages for all ages. The plot centers on a Ute teenager who discovers that the last of the grizzly bears are still living in the San Juan Mountains. It is heroic and heartwarming.


    10. Macoy M I think that the book I have to read might be a good book. I read the back of one on google and it sounds like it might be a really good book but we'll just have to see. I found a book I thought I might thought and I got half way through and it still hasn't got any better from the introduction


    11. This one took a little while to get into, but halfway through it really picked up steam. I love the detailed descriptions of the Weminuche, the conservation messages, and the increased character development and adventure from the first book. A winner.


    12. A sequel to BeatstoneHobbs description of the areas that Cloyd is exploring are so vivid that I feel like I am right there even though I've never been there. Again, Hobbs takes real events and melds them with fiction.




    13. This YA novel is a suspenseful, page turner that explores Native Amerrican legends with real life adventures.


    14. This was an amazing book, you really become one with the characters.10 out of 10It is amazing and is full of suspense and drama and much much more, I'm so sad that it ended.



    15. I liked this book. it was a little magical, but it was really cool. the kid is so determined that it is unbelievable. Also the bears seem really cute.


    16. sequel to Bearstone, southwest Colorado mountains, Ute Indian boy, Klinkit professor from Montana, old mountain men and bear cubs and family. Lots of Indoan lore, mountain ways and bear knowledge.
