Plot summary: After he is wrongly accused of murder, California woodsman Grizzly Adams, who had once been a Boston cobbler, rescues an orphaned bear, names it "Ben" and finds he has a strong natural bond with the local wildlife. While Ben is growing up Adams also forms a close friendship with a native American named Nakoma [Don Shanks] by caring for him while a broken leg heals.
