The Bears and I is a retelling of the true story of Vietnam veteran Bob Leslie (Patrick Wayne), who seeks solitude in the Canadian Rocky Mountains following his discharge from the armed forces. There, he finds three orphaned bear cubs that he wants to protect. Bob chooses to settle near the Indian settlement at White Bird Lake. With patience and kindness, he eventually earns the trust of the three bear cubs. His protection of the young bears causes trouble with the Indian tribe, led by Chief Peter A-Tas-Ka-Nay (Chief Dan George), who believe the bear to be their guardian spirit. When the government comes in with plans to displace the tribe to make way for a national park the tribe blames Bob's interference in the animals' lives for bringing bad luck. Bob chooses to act as an intermediary between the government and the tribe, but soon he is faced with a difficult decision. The film is based on the book by Robert Franklin Leslie and was released by Disney in 1974.moreless
