THIS is the one my wife vaguely remembers - about a boy with a younger brother who had learning disabilities, but that's not what they called it then. The younger brother refused to go to school, or something like that. I can't remember if he ran away from home on purpose or just plain got lost on the prairie, but the boy had made friends with a falcon and a badger and followed both around the prairie searching for food and shelter. The falcon or the badger (can't remember which) lead the boy home, and the badger protects the boy from the attack of another wild animal - bobcat or wolf, again, can't remember which. I do remember trying to learn to whistle to attract my own falcon and I never did learn - I'm still practicing! I got into bird watching and bird identification because of this show because I wanted my own cool falcon as a pet, which probably wasn't a great idea in Los Angeles but would have been cool at the time. To this day I gave my daughter a cool falcon name and pay attention when the red-tailed hawks cry up in the sky here in Central California. I'm still hoping to one day learn falconry just because of this show.
