William Faulkner's classic short story, "The Bear", describes a young boy's
rite of passage into adulthood in the 1880s. This program, which was taped
on location in and around Faulkner's hometown of Oxford, Mississippi, traces
the boy's growth through his developing relationship with a legendary bear,
Old Ben. A scrappy survivor in a vanishing wilderness, Old Ben eventually
lures the boy into a confrontation that tests his courage and teaches him a
valuable lesson about himself.
