From the Back Cover:

Of all the animals in North America, none commands as much respect, interest, awe, and fear as the bear. Endowed by nature with incredible size, speed, intelligence, and power, bears in the 21st century now compete for survival with the only other animals that can threaten their existence: Humans. Bear Attacks, first published by Lyons & Burford, in 1985 and now thoroughly revised and updated, is the classic, authoritative, and unflinching study of attacks on humans by the mighty grizzly and the normally less aggressive, but sometimes deadly, black bear. This book is for everyone who camps, hikes, or visits bear country -and for anyone who wants to learn more about these fearsome but always fascinating wild creatures. (6 x 9, 304 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, charts) Stephen Herrero is a professor at the University of Calgary. He is recognized throughout the world as a leading authority on bears.

From the Inside Flap:

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?

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.
