What causes bear attacks? Can attacks be prevented? If you are attacked, are there defensive measures that can save your life?For answers to these and many other questions, Mike Cramond conducted full investigations of many of the over 250 documented attacks in his files. These include attacks by grizzlies, black bears, and polar bears. On this project, he traveled 40,000 miles to visit attack sites and interview surviving victims, witnesses, biologists, and official investigators.The resulting stories dramatically recreate these attacks and then examine their causes. From the evidence, Cramond often offers fascinating challenges to popular beliefs on bear behavior. Many of the stories also touch on the attack aftermaths: hospital ordeals, physical disabilities, and heartbreaking battles for compensation.Killer Bears is essential reading for anyone who would step into bear country, and serves as a principal reference for all who would study and report on bear-man issues in North America. Meticulously researched and chock-full of expert knowledge, Killer Bears stands as a vital and important part of our literature on nature and survival. (6 x 9, 320 pages, chart)
Mike Cramond was a hunting guide, game warden, newspaperman, and provincial policeman in Vancouver, British Columbia.
