"BearWalker" is a modern tale steeped in the rich tapestry of native-American mythology. Twenty years ago, David Walking Bear was banished from his tribe and exiled from his reservation. He was the coming of a myth, a legend that always meant death and destruction to his people. The child was a BearWalker, a loup garou, a changeling, a werewolf. |
Twenty years later, David is an alcoholic living on the streets, booze being the only thing that can curb his uncontrollable changes and fury. One evening, a gang of rednecks decide to "clean the streets" of some urchins and descend onto David and two others. Brutally beating them with bats and pipes, the rednecks take pleasure in the attack. But they've picked the wrong man to violate. David changes into the BearWalker, a beast of legend, and obliterates the attackers.
Because of the attention, David must flee. He becomes the target of a ruthless tabloid reporter, Dillinger. Through all of this, another person has taken notice of the events. Her name is Jeanette and she's a nurse. But not just any nurse, Jeanette is also the stuff of legend -- she's a healer, a BloodStopper. She recognizes the accounts of the BearWalker and knows she can help the beast
