Bear Song is the story of a small English Colony that history tells us mysteriously disappeared from Fort Raleigh on Roanoke Island in the late sixteenth century. In Bear Song the colonists have found refuge on the mainland with the Lake People. They learn survival skills from their hosts, and for a time the two cultures live in harmony.

Eleanor, her mother, lives in fear of the wild animals and of their hosts. Gray Squirrel, known for her wisdom and healing skills, plays an important role in binding the two cultures. But the whole village is at risk of being wiped out when a small pox epidemic is brought to the village through an innocent act of kindness. First the old and very young die. Gray Squirrel tries everything she knows to heal her people but nothing works. Just as she loses all hope a bear comes to her in a dream. But does his healing message come in time to save the villagers?
