Summary

Summary

"Well, there was a man once, and he had a bear . . ." begins this story about a friendship between man and beast. The man understands the language of bears, and the two travel together from village to village, performing for all. They are "a part of the highway like the knotty old apple trees and whitethorn bushes." Profound in its simplicity, the story is also a tribute to man's devotion to God and the goodness of the human soul. Includes black-and-white illustrations throughout.
