Eye of the Great Bearby Bill Wallace
The bullies called him a coward. Even his brothers thought 11-year-old Bailey was scared of his shadow. But on July 4th, 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? Just as Bailey begins to believe that the "sissy" reputation would follow him forever, he is forced to make a choice that could cost him his life.

Meet the Author
Bill Wallace grew up in Oklahoma. Along with riding their horses, he and his friends enjoyed campouts and fishing trips. Toasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories to scare one another, and catching fish was always fun.
One of the most memorable trips took place on the far side of Lake Lawtonka, at the base of Mt. Scott. He and his best friend, Gary, spent the day shooting shad with bow and arrows, cutting bank poles, and getting ready to go when their dads got home from work.
Although there was no "monster" in Lake Lawtonka, one night there was a "sneak attack" by a rather large catfish tail. Checking the bank poles was not nearly as fun or "free" after that point, but it was the inspiration for this story.
Bill Wallace has won nineteen children's state awards and been awarded the Arrell Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for Children's Literature from the Oklahoma Center for the Book.
