The title says, "Touching Spirit Bear". What does the title mean to Cole in the book? What does it mean to you?

The Spirit Bear is thought to be unique to an individual, a wild and natural manifestation of one's unique spirit. Cole has lost the natural side to his Spirit. He has lost his place in the natural order of things as all as his own identity. Both seeing his Spirit Bear and touching it starts Cole on his journey back to self-understanding, the natural world and finally redemption. This is a long and painful process but worth it in the end.
