About this book

Thousands of people travel to Alaska each year specifically to view wild bears-one of the fastest growing outdoor recreational activities in the world. Dr. Stephen F. Stringham, a naturalist, biologist, and professional viewing guide, tells you where to find the best viewing locations, when to make your trip, and what conditions to expect. How do you know when a bear is becoming agitated and aggressive? What questions should you should ask when hiring a viewing guide? And perhaps most importantly, how can you avoid disturbing the animals you're viewing?

Enlivened by personal stories and Kent Fredriksson's gorgeous photographs, this invaluable resource is for anyone interested in experiencing firsthand the majesty and grace of Alaska's wild bears.
