Sue Houser did a marvelous job of putting together the message of the Smokey Bear Program in her story. She successfully conveyed historical data concerning the rescuing by fire fighters, nursing back to health by the Bell family, and transforming the black bear cub into a living symbol for Smokey Bear. --Don Bell, son of Game Warden Ray Bell

First nurtured at the Bell Ranch, Smokey romped with a young cocker spaniel that even toilet trained the cub to newspapers. But what to do with an older bear? Four years prior to the capture, the U.S. Forest Service created a fire prevention campaign complete with an image of a bear. Now they had a real bear with a great story, so in 1950 Smokey went to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.
Even for adults the story is intriguing. Depending on the reading ability, children will equally become engaged, either by reading the book independently or listening. The book is a fine tribute to not only one of New Mexico's most famous celebrity, but our country's.
