As a member of the Mohawk Bear Clan, Baron Braun has always been fascinated by bears—their gentle strength and untamed power. But the Bearwalker legend, passed down by his ancestors, tells of a different kind of creature—a terrible mix of human and animal that looks like a bear but is really a bloodthirsty monster. The tale never seemed to be more than a scary story, that is, until now.   During his eighth grade  class camping trip deep in the Adirondacks, Baron comes face-to-face with an evil being that is all too real.   Bearwalker is a story packed with suspense, humor, and adventure that you won’t want to put down.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2008-2009)
