(From the publisher):
The bullies called him a coward. Even his brothers thought 11-year-old Bailey Trumbull was scared of his shadow. Exploding firecrackers sent him jumping as high as a kite. He hated July 4th. But it was on that day at a carnival in Abilene that an old Indian medicine man made an astonishing prophecy: "Some men spend their life searching for who they are—searching for their courage, You will see yourself in the eye of the great bear".
What did he mean? Bailey nearly forgot the prophecy when Daddy got heatsickness and the family had to move to Montana. Suddenly everything became topsy-turvy. Bailey's whole life changed except the bullies and the "sissy" reputation that followed wherever he went. Until the day the medicine man's prophecy came true and Bailey had to make a choice that risked his life...
