The Last Wilderness

This book takes place in The Last Wilderness. The four Seeker bears were expecting the Last Great Wilderness to be full of prey and free of humans.
The bears had finally reached the Last Great Wilderness and start to plan what they will do. They find much prey and eat well. Ujurak transforms into a goose to catch prey, and swallows a tendril that injures him terribly. The bears have no choice but to take him to flat-faces, though it was believed there weren't any at the Wilderness.
Ujurak learns that the humans are trying to drill for oil, though some humans are trying to protect the land. The humans had already been drilling on the ice for quite some time, surprising the bears.
