Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For anyone planning a journey in bear country, this book should be required reading.”
Rocky Mountain News

“By far the most informed and comprehensive book I have read on bears’ reactions to human intrusion and vice-versa.”
–Andy Russell, author of Grizzly Country

“Herrero’s Bear Attacks remains the ultimate resource on North American bears for both the highly educated bear biologist and the lay person alike.”
— Luanne Freer, M.D., emergency medical specialist

“[Bear Attacks] goes far beyond the stories of confrontations with grizzly bears in national parks that form the basis of many people’s knowledge of bears.”
— Katherine L. Jope, Katmai National Park and Preserve

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
