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. FINDING WINNIE 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.
