Bear Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidanceby Stephen Herrero
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.

I read this book after my first trip to Montana. Not only did it teach me many useful ways to keep safe and a lot about the behavior of bears, but it also made me very interested in this topic.
I bought this book after reading 'The Bear's Embrace' because I wanted additional information about bears and their behavior. The author of this book is one of the top researchers of bear behavior (he has a PhD. in animal behavior), and has over 30 years of experience observing and recording the behavior of bears. This book presents a balanced, objective analysis of everything related to bears from their feeding habits to attcks.
We took a trip to Glacier and this book was very useful in keeping us safe
