James "Grizzly" Adams

The real Grizzly Adams caught a one-year-old brown bear, and taught her to follow him and carry a pack and then to pull a loaded sled. 

She even cuddled up near Adams to keep him warm in freezing conditions. 

Eventually, the bear, named Lady Washington, allowed Adams to ride on her back.
