Is this journey's end . . . or just the beginning?

Toklo, Kallik, Lusa, and Ujurak have finally reached the Last Great Wilderness, the legendary bear paradise they've been searching for. But while his companions think they've come to the end of their long journey, Ujurak feels a deep unrest. Is this truly where they're meant to be?

In the Last Great Wilderness, one by one the bears begin to remember their true natures. Toklo feels the urge to hunt caribou and mark his territory as a brown bear should, and Kallik feels the pull of the ice within her. It's only Lusa, happy just to be in the wild, who fears the day when her friends will leave her to follow their own paths.

As the bears adjust to this new life, disaster strikes. The friends are forced to venture into the world of the flat-faces to save the life of one of their own. Once there, the end of their journey seems farther away than ever, as a new path spreads out before them.

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“These stories will be welcomed by the Warriors series’ many fans.”
VOYA - Pam Carlson
Having reached the Last Great Wilderness, Urujak, Toklo, Kallik, and Lusa believe their quest to find a home free of flatfaces is over. Instead, Urujak is forced to transform himself into human form after an accident leaves him near death. The flatface healer is kind, but he and his friends are no match for greedy politicians who want to develop the land and take the oil. Urujak is kid/bearnapped to a hospital where he can receive "proper" treatment. His friends follow as best they can, attempting to avoid both humans and the sticky, stinky oil that is apparently spilling across the ground just waiting to be absorbed into their fur. Exhausted and hungry but reunited, the four brace themselves for the next part of their journey—across the ice into Kallik's territory. Will they stay together? Will they ever find home? With new challenges coming, it's beginning to seem doubtful. The narration often reflects the energy level of the bears, dragging or moving briskly. Human characters are stereotyped as wise and understanding or mean and rotten. The tracking ability of the bears is a bit unbelievable, along with their uncanny avoidance of capture, but fans of the Seekers series won't mind the predictability that they will overcome all obstacles. Reviewer: Pam Carlson
Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
When four bears—Ujurak, Lusa, Toklo, and Kallik—form an uncommon friendship, their shared journey reveals their many different facets. Although they have their own individual longings and innate desires in terms of their destinies, they look to the needs of each other before acting on their own wants. Ujurak teaches them the importance of following the internal voice that guides an individual. Through Lusa, they learn of determination and tenacity. Toklo provides protection and the spirit of a watchful big-brother. Kallik displays maturity and stability reminding the young ones to be cautious. The book's environmental message speaks loudly and serves as a much-needed reminder of the damage humankind is capable of inflicting on Mother Earth. The bears' discovery of the flat-faced world shows progress being made to the detriment of the planet's inhabitants. This enjoyable read with a message speaks to the heart and consciousness of the reader. Reviewer: Allison Fetters

My 9 year old daughter bought the first seekers book with a B&N gift card. It sat for a while then she started reading it for homework and by the end of the week, it was finished. She said it was the best book she has read yet and can't wait to start the second book. She begged me to get the book, I bought the second and third Seeker books for Valentine's Day and wanted them to be a surprise. Every time we went to Barnes and Nobles prior to Valentine's Day, she pleaded with me to buy the second book. I said no we can't this visit. I asked, are they that good, she said yes there were. When she opened her Valentine's gift, she was so excited to have both the second and third books, she started reading them that day. She finished those pretty quickly. She received a B&N gift card from a family member and she bought the fourth Seekers book. She is waiting for a fifth one to come out. She loves these and she thinks she is going to start the Warriors series, which is by the same author. I highly recommend this book to a family that wants to get their child to read an adventure that they will remember!

The book I am reviewing is Seekers The Last Wilderness.This is the Forth book in a amazing series by Erin Hunter.She also has wrote the series Warriors.This book is an example of fiction.This book is about four bears Toklo,Kallik,Lusa and Ujurak Who set out on a Journey to save the wilderness.The four bears are growing apart and they need to come together to finish there journey.This book keeps you guessing whats next. This book suggests that if we don't stop polluting the animals will have nowhere to go. There is a setting in the book were they are in a oil town and they are destroying the wilderness."Until we came to this place,I didn't know why. I thought I was trying to find a place where bears can live safely. But it's more than that." I think this book was great. I think if you are going to read this book, rtead the whole series!

Flat-faces, landwalkers, and no-claws. Firebeasts,metal birds and pelts. First three: All mean "humans." 2nd three: Firebeasts are cars, metalbirds are helicopters, and "pelts" to humans are clothing. Bonus...what is a "Bear Bowl" ? A Bear Bowl is the place for bears in the zoo.
