Over 10 hours of the hugely popular 1970’s television series on this 4-DVD set!
Created by Charles E. Sellier, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams features Dan Haggerty as James ‘Grizzly’ Adams, a character loosely based on the actual 19th century mountain man.
After being accused of a crime he did not commit, Adams takes sanctuary in a remote mountain area in the American west, where he discovers and befriends an orphaned grizzly cub. The cub eventually grows into a full-sized grizzly bear that Adams affectionately calls Ben. Together, Adams and Ben learn to survive in the wilderness, assisted by an old trader named ‘Mad Jack’ (played by Denver Pyle) and a Native American named Nakoma (played by Don Shanks). Impressed with the way Adams has adapted to his environment and his uncanny rapport with animals, Nakoma and Jack come to appreciate Adams’ harmonious existence with nature. Unfortunately, Adams needs to be watchful for bounty hunters, even as he protects the wildlife he grows to cherish.
