I listened to a book called Bearstone by Will Hobbs. It was OK, I guess....

It's about a boy who stays with an old man and finds a carved stone in the shape of a bear in a Native American cliff tomb! I think the main intent is that revenge is bad. I think that because when he cut down the old man's plum trees, he got to go home. Plus, he said so.

I don't really recommend this book. It put me to sleep. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380712490, Paperback)

Fourteen-year-old Cloyd was trouble. Trouble to himself and everyone else. He'd grown up without his parents, without schooling, half-wild and alone in remote Utah canyons. Sent by his tribe to a group home for Indian boys, his feeling of isolation turns to desperation - and even more trouble.

But high in the majestic mountains of Colorado where Cloyd is taken to live with an old rancher, he finds a small carved turquoise bear in an Indian burial cave. Secretly renaming himself Lone Bear, Cloyd calls upon the strength of his ancient ancestors - first to do battle with his own hostilities, but finally to discover the magic power of an old man's love, and the secrets of living in a world he has just begun to understand.
