About this book

A powerful symbol of wilderness, the grizzly bear was once widespread from Alaska to Mexico. Today 99% of its population in the lower 48 US states is gone - a victim of habitat loss, over-hunting, and predator control programs that were based more on emotion than fact. This well-researched volume looks at the natural and cultural history of the grizzly, with vital information on its evolution, habitat, diet, reproduction, intelligence and behaviour. The almanac also covers the emotion-charged topic of grizzly attacks, with descriptions of notable cases and practical information on avoiding them.
