Anything can happen anywhere.

Anywhere was an island.

Anything was a bear.

One windy morning on a wild and quiet Hebridean island, a bear appeared where there should not have been a bear. The islanders panicked before they soon realized that this was no ordinary bear.

The gentle giant played happily in streams, danced in the wind, and would not harm a living thing. But even friendly bears don’t belong on Scottish islands. Will he ever find his way home?

Based on a true story from the Scottish Hebrides.
