    More Alaska Bear Tales

    I have read the second book first and cannot wait to read the first . It was so compelling how it was written that I felt as though I was there face to face with the Bear. I never have been to Alaska nor have encountered a bear but I do hunt. And from reading the stories and first hand accounts from these people in this book I have found a new view and respect for the outdoors and wildlife. I'm not even sure I would go to alaska for the real potinal danger one could encounter there. these creatures are awesume and need real respect and deligents when around their enviourment.

    Alaska Bear Tales - Teeth and Claws Too

    'Alaska Bear Tales' is an outstanding read. Riveting, amazing, chills down your spine, and yet also humorous at moments. Having worked and travelled extensively throughout Alaska, on the original survey for the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, as well as on several other survey and exploration projects and work for the Bureau of Land Management and Alaska Fish and Game Commission, I frequently found myself in rather close quarters with the big Brownies, or Grizzly bears. I can relate in one way or another to several of the tales in 'Alaska Bear Tales' and can't wait to begin reading Kaniut's sequel book, 'More Alaska Bear Tales'.
