Publisher's Summary

Of the animals in North America, none commands such dread, awe, and interest as the bear. Creatures that fear little, bears compete for survival with the only other animals that can threaten their existence: Humans. Bear Attacks is a thorough and unflinching study of attacks made on humans.

This is the sometimes horrific, yet always instructive, story of Bear and Human, written by the leading scientific authority in the field. This book is for everyone who camps, hikes, or visits bear country - and for anyone who wants to learn more about these fearsome but always fascinating wild creatures.

Excellent resource

This book is in invaluable resource for those venturing into bear country. Information presented here is important both for your safety and the wildlife you may encounter. You may end up drawing different conclusions on how to best protect yourself in the outdoors, as I have, but this will be a great resource to making informed decisions.
