From the author of The World of Fighting Dogs and Pit Bulls and Tenacious Guard Dogs comes this third and most impressive book to date, Gladiator Dogs. Bringing to life 13 breeds originally used as fighting dogs, Dr. Carl Semencic illustrates the history, characteristics, and abilities of the world's toughest canines. The author does not fight dogs and does not condone dogfighting, but he is fascinated with the qualities and instincts of these fearless gladiator breeds.
The American Black Bear is far from the docile, friendly creature often depicted in TV and movies. While it's able to live beside people when it's borders and boundaries are respected, events take a far different turn when those boundaries are crossed by bears - or man. In Encounter: The Black Bear and Man, naturalist, outdoorsman and hunter Carl Semencic, author of Gladiator Dogs, explores those encounters, the tragedies that result and how education and respect leads to better outcomes for everyone, bear and man alike.
