    truely amazing

    I bought this book in 5th grade long ago because i was interested in animal behavior and also in the gore of the attacks. I found a book that sated both those hungers. the actual accounts of the attacks are few and far between which makes the book a little dry at first but then once things start rolling it is truly a great read for anyone. just remember that there is a lot of detail to the scenes.

    Made me more aware!!

    I bought this book at the visitor's center in Glacier National Park. I had very little knowledge of grizzly bears, but this book opened my eyes. I read it every night in my hotel room... couldn't put it down. It made me more aware the next day when I went hiking in the park... I actually didn't hike far because I wasn't prepared for bear territory. One thing is for sure... you are definitely more alive and your senses are more aware in bear territory.

    An excellent explanatory book

    This book is very eye opening. Before I read this book, I had very little idea of what bears are like. The book, despite the title, is on bear behavior and bear attacks. Scott McMillion states his opinion in a clear, concise way without being too prominent or stubborn.

    Excellent Read!

    The first time I read this book, I could not put it down! As with the second time too! I purchased this book because I have a fascination with bears and now I have a deep appreciation for their unbelievable power and for the role they play in this world. I can't imagine being a victim of a bear attack. I have passed this book on to many friends, which in turn have bought a copy for their own library. Read it! It is incredible!

    Interesting

    Interesting, good writing. Not all that informative about grizzly behavior, can be a bit graphic about actual bear maulings. Overstates the risk of grizzly encounters in Glacier Nat'l Park and understates risk in Alaska.

    Powerful and riveting stories

    It takes a skilled writer to keep me so absorbed in a book. I applaud McMillion for knowing the right bear book hadn¿t been written yet and that he could do it. I also appreciate the knowledge I picked up about bear behavior ¿ never look `em in the eye!
