It was a beautiful June day in 1783.  Since it was Sunday.  No one was working around the house.  Little Sarah is happy when her parents decide to visit nearby relatives.  Her excitement is turned to anger when she is told she must stay home.  It is too far for Sarah to walk.  After her parents leave, Sarah quietly follows them.  She becomes distracted by some beautiful flowers and wanders into the woods while picking a bouquet.  She realizes she is lost and sits down and cries.  Suddenly she sees a giant animal crashing through the woods.  What kind of animal is it?  Is is a dog or a bear?  Will Sarah be safe?  To find out, read THE BEAR THAT HEARD CRYING based on a true story of the authors ancestors in New Hampshire.
