Treasure Chest
Beardance

As this high-adventure sequel to Bearstone opens, Cloyd Atcitty and his rancher friend Walter are riding once more into the mountains, this time chasing the old man's dream of finding a lost Spanish gold mine. But the report of a mother grizzly with cubs sets Cloyd dreaming of grizzlies, not gold. Up in the high country Cloyd meets a remarkable woman named Ursa, a grizzly expert who is out searching for the bears. Together they find them, the last grizzlies in Colorado. But when the cubs are orphaned in an accident, it's up to Cloyd, staying on alone in the mountains, to keep them alive.
