this book is really spooky, but its full of good storys and all sorts of things. the storys in it are really scary and bring the fear out about those little bears everybody think are cute. some bears wont stop attacking you untill your dead and then they'll eat you right then and there or theyll leave you to die slowly. and if you do maange to live the chances of survivl is very, very slim. some of the people who where lucky enouph to survive have lost limbs, sufferid from brain damage,or suffer...more
Another quick read. I've read quite a few bear attack books but hadn't heard any of these stories (all of which take place in Alaska). One of the spookiest to me was the one in which the bear jumped through a glass window to gain access into a room 2 men were sitting in.

I'm always amazed at the strength and courage humans display in survival situation. Though, I don't think I ever want to go hunting in bear country least without a good caliber gun.
Really spooky - especially when you're reading it in a tent in bear country. But it also helped prepare so I had an idea of what to do or don't do if I should encounter a bear on one of my hikes.
