Bear Country, a Walt Disney True-Life Adventure by Betty Ren Wright. 1954 first edition.


Adapted from the Walt Disney True-Life Adventure Motion Picture "Bear Country" by Betty Ren Wright. Illustrated by Edward and Stephani Godwin. First edition, 1954. Whitman Publishing Company. Racine, Wisconsin. Tell-A-Tale Books R, 2554:15.

"These are the bear cubs who live in the great woods - at least, this is how they looked last spring. And this is the warm dark cave where they lived with their mother.

"The bear cubs had never seen a fir tree - or a river or a bird, or a porcupine with a prickly-stickly tail. Why, there were such little babies that they didn't know about anything at all."

The bear cubs spend a year learning what to eat and discovering new things before winter returns and they return to their cave.

Betty Ren Wright (1927 - 2013) was an American author of children's fiction, particularly ghost stories, such as "The Dollhouse Murders" and "Christina's Ghost."
