Mauled by a giant grizzly and left to die, 16 year-old Jose Olano's chances for life were remote. Then, like a guardian angel, came Robert "Gray Eagle" McAllister, one-time army scout and sometime outlaw. In his flight to escape a posse, he finds the brutalized body of Jose. Knowing his decision to help Jose may mean his own death, he stays and brings Jose back from the brink of death. With Gray Eagle's teaching, Jose, the simple sheepherder, becomes a legendary "man of the wilderness." Thus began one of the greatest companionships ever known to the Idaho frontier.
