About the Author

Being from a storytelling family pays off: if you hear stories often enough, you find you can tell them too. Susan J. Crockford is a professional zoologist who has studied polar bear ecology and evolution for more than 20 years and has a special interest in the history of human-polar bear interactions. She has a Ph.D. and writes a blog about polar bears called PolarBearScience. After years of writing scientific papers and books and blogging about polar bears for non-scientists, Susan has written her first novel—for readers who prefer their science “lite” and love a good story.

If you have ever been tempted to walk up to a polar bear and hug it, Eaten will cure you forever of that desire. Susan Crockford, a Canadian zoologist specializing in polar bears, has written a highly-readable and factual novel about what happens when polar bears living in close proximity to humans become hungry. The outcome for humans is not pretty! These huge predators normally dine on seals in late winter, ambushing them on the ice and crushing their heads in their massive jaws. The same tactic works really well on human prey, especially when said humans insist on ignoring warnings to stay indoors, away from windows, and never venture out without a gun and a few buddies for protection. When the seal population catches a type of distemper that sickens and kills them, the polar bears must search for other food. How the population of Newfoundland reacts to suddenly becoming acceptable polar bear chow makes for a fine cautionary tale. If you are squeamish about gore, this might be a bit too explicit for you and it certainly is not suitable for young children. The title alone should tell you that!
