This book is the least interesting of the three of this theme I recently read. The author seems more interested in pushing his bear rights agenda than simply telling a story. He blames humans for most of the attacks. We are also told repeatedly that bear spray is the most effective method of stopping a bear attack. (Never mind that in a few of the tales the spray proved absolutely worthless.). In all but two or three of the stories we are reminded how guns would have been absolutely useless in preventing the attack. In the few stories where a gun saved the attack victims' life, the author simply ends the story with no commentary. The first tale, I thought was completely rediculous. I got the feeling that the two female victims wanted to go out into the woods to give the attacking bear a big hug, after all, they were trespassing in the bears' back yard. Overall, I guess I enjoyed this book, but I was expecting to read about real-life adventures, not a bunch of reasons humans should tolerate bear attacks. If you are of the type that blame man for all that is wrong with the world, you may enjoy this book. If you want exciting tales of animal attacks without the editorializing, try one of Larry Kaniut"s books, such as "Danger Stalks the Land".
