Smoke Mountain (Seekers #3)
Three bears; one incredible journey to the ends of the Earth. The remarkable follow-up series to the New York Times best-seller, Warriors. There is a place where bears can live in peace, where there is sea-ice all year round, where the forests are full of prey, and where flat-faces never go. Polar bears Kallik and Taqqiq, black bear Lusa, grizzly Toklo and the shape-shifting Ujurak believe that this fabled bear paradise must be the destination of their quest. But the path they follow through burning Smoke Mountains is treacherous. Signs and omens point in different directions, and in the end each bear must follow their own star. Only together will they survive the quest through the harsh wilderness. The third magical instalment of Erin Hunter's Seekers series. Seekers explores profound environmental themes through the eyes of those suffering at the hands of humans in six epic fantasy books. Animal stories for both boys and girls touching on the wonder, savagery and fragility of the natural world.
Erin Hunter is actually not one, but four people. Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry and Victoria Holmes, who all live in the UK, and worked together to create the bestselling Warrior series. For Seekers, they have been joined by American writer Tui Sutherland, further developing the universal feel of this series.
