Bearstone, Will Hobbs

Because of his misbehavior, a young Native American boy finds himself kicked out of a home for troubled youth and sent to live with an old farmer who has just lost his wife. The farm is near the Colorado Rockies and near the ancestral home of the boy's people. Life-changing experiences and profound realizations combine in this story of a young man who comes to terms with his heritage, himself, and his attitude toward the future.
