[quote from book]

"Knowledge is the best defense against bears. Outdoors people who know about bears have already taken the vital first step. They know what kind of equipment to bring, how to set up camp, when and where to hike and be more careful, and which bear and human behaviors increase the chance of an encounter. And the well informed can more easily deal with any encounter."
