Their Causes and AvoidanceBook - 2018
Of All the Animals in North America's Widerness, None Commands as much Respect, Awe, Interest, and Fear as the Bear. Endowed by nature with incredible size, speed, intelligence, and power, bears in the twenty-first century now compete for survival with the only animals that can threaten their existence: humans. For more than three decades, Bear Attacks has been the thorough and unflinching landmark study of the attacks made on humans by the great grizzly and the less aggressive, but occasionally deadly, black bear. This is the sometimes horrific yet instructive story of bears and people, written by the world's leading scientific authority in the field. This book is essential for anyone who hikes, camps, or visits bear country-and for anyone who wants to know more about these-sometimes fearsome but always fascinating wild creatures. Book jacket.
