January 1, 2008
A must have reference for anyone likely to meet a bear, whether in the backyard or in the depths of the Alaskan wilderness. Thrilling and sometimes humorous close encounter stories illustrate the book's sage advice on avoiding close bear encounters or coping with them. This is the most thorough guide available on how to avoid bears while hiking, camping, fishing, hunting or watching wildlife. Or, if you can't or won't avoid bears, it explains how to safely watch peaceful bears, as well as how to appease, intimidate, deter or kill aggressive ones. The book contains over 100 images by renown photographers such as Kent Fredriksson, and illustrations by Blackfeet Indian artist Gerald Trombley.
