About this book

The bear is an enduring symbol of wilderness in the United States. All three species of this magnificent carnivore – black, grizzly and polar – can break your neck with a simple swat of their massive arms and clawed paws. Nevertheless, bears are not evil or monstrous. It is your behaviour that can make all the difference. Your best defence is to learn everything you can about bears and act accordingly.

That's where Bear Attacks comes in. You'll discover how bears communicate, what they eat, how they socialize, what habitat they use, what time of year they are active, what they do around their cubs and what their various vocalizations signify. Bear Attacks features:

- stories of bear attacks, both historical and contemporary, showing how suddenly and unexpectedly bears can severely injure and kill humans
- detailed identification of each bear species, including illustrations, range maps and black and white photos
- population densities
- typical dangerous behaviours to avoid
- survival techniques

Armed with the right information and common sense, you can travel and play safely in the great American wilderness.
