Before Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie.
 
In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian on his way to tend horses in World War I, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear. He named her Winnie, after his hometown of Winnipeg, and he took the bear to war.
 
Harry Colebourn's real-life great-granddaughter tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey--from the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England...
 
And finally to the London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend: a real boy named Christopher Robin.
 
Here is the remarkable true story of the bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh.

西元1914年,歐洲正在發生的大戰,漸漸的把戰爭的影響擴大到全世界,遙遠的北美洲也無法置身事外。很難想像,這麼動盪不安的時空背景下,竟然意外的發展出一段真誠的情誼,還有一個溫暖無比的故事。
 
哈利.柯伯恩(Harry Colebourn)是來自加拿大維尼伯(Winnipeg)的青年獸醫,因為大戰爆發而從軍,他和許多家鄉的士兵一起搭乘火車,火車開了一天一夜,到了一千公里外的白河(White River)才停了下來。在火車站的月台上,哈利遇見了一位獵人正在賣一隻熊寶寶,猶豫許久,他最後用20英磅買下她──他希望這隻失去母親的小熊,能夠得到真正的關愛和照顧。

哈利決定以家鄉的名字為她命名:維尼伯,讓大家一解鄉愁,感覺離家沒有那麼遠。為了方便發音,大家都叫她「維尼(Winnie)」。維尼聰明、可愛的模樣很快的融化每一個士兵,成為加拿大步兵第二旅的吉祥物,所有的人都喜歡她,她甚至有自己的崗哨,每天都和士兵一樣值勤!
