About the book:
"In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, an anxious twelve-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the twelve-year-old and his father become fugitives, forced to run from Coos County - to Boston, to southern Vermont, to Toronto - pursued by the implacable constable. Their lone protector is a fiercely libertarian logger, once a river driver, who befriends them."
According to this useful chart in Wikipedia (so it must be true), it's his 4th book to feature bears.
Update - 18th November - Good things do happen - I was sent one of the proof copies of the book!
