This tale, passed down by the illustrator's mother, tells the story of a person who had a bad-tempered pet bear and how they used to feed him sugar to sweeten him up. Ernestine Ygnacio- De Soto illustrated her mother's Sugar Bear Story as an example of how life's lessons are transmitted to children in traditional Chumash society. The book, with text in the original Barbareno Chumash and English on each page, also includes a basic glossary of the words of the words used, and a map that shows where the Chumash lived.
