Toklo, Lusa, Kallik and Yakone are back in this fifth installment of the Seekers: Return to the Wild series. These bear friends are traveling to Great Bear Lake for the Longest Day to find their own place to call home. With a dramatic mix of unfortunate circumstances and amusing predicaments, these bears run into a plethora of obstacles along the way, each more harrowing than the last. However, nothing can tear apart the friendship of these four. Every bad thing that happens brings them closer together and makes them more aware of the fact that at the end of their journey, all of them will have to go their separate ways. Hunter does a phenomenal job of demonstrating the power of friendship and how important it is to have good friends to lean on in hard times.
