Description

What causes bear attacks? When should you play dead and when should you fight an attacking bear? What do we know about black and grizzly bears and how can this knowledge be used to avoid bear attacks? And, more generally, what is the bear’s future?

Bear Attacks is a thorough and unflinching landmark study of the attacks made on men and women by the great grizzly and the occasionally deadly black bear. This is a book for everyone who hikes, camps, or visits bear country – and for anyone who wants to know more about these sometimes fearsome but always fascinating wild creatures.

From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Review

“For anyone planning a journey in bear country, this book should be required reading.”
Rocky Mountain News
“By far the most informed and comprehensive book I have read on bears’ reactions to human intrusion and vice-versa.”
–Andy Russell, author of Grizzly Country
“Herrero’s Bear Attacks remains the ultimate resource on North American bears for both the highly educated bear biologist and the lay person alike.”
— Luanne Freer, M.D., emergency medical specialist

“[Bear Attacks] goes far beyond the stories of confrontations with grizzly bears in national parks that form the basis of many people’s knowledge of bears.”
— Katherine L. Jope, Katmai National Park and Preserve
