THE WILLIWAW CUBS

Joe Beck, a boy who lives in Kodiak, feels pressed not only to prove himself as a man but to shoulder the responsibilities resulting from an accident suffered by his fisherman father. Now an invalid, Big Joe is also indebted to another man, Bank Kane, and it is against Kane that young Joe must struggle in the very task through which the boy can repair matters. That job is capturing two brown bear cubs for a zoo man who has come to Kodiak on a hunting expedition. With the rivalry between Kane and Joe, the Aleutian superstitions regarding the bears, and the nature lore woven into the narrative, this is an efficiently written adventure.
