A bear cub named Niwa gets separated from his mother and meets a hunter and his faithful dog, Miki. The dog and the cub quickly go into the wild, tough. Niwa uses the teachings his mother thought him to survive, and Miki uses both his instincts and Niwa's methods to do the same. The two become friends. But sooner or later a bear must hibernate... This is a cheering and wonderful nature story where the listener is immeasurably rewarded by getting to hear the narration of both a dog and a bear.
