Most people think of nature and wilderness as a place where animals and humans can play and peacefully co-exist. Yet as the end of the twentieth century draws nearer, it turns out animals and people do not live at peace as often as the television shows would have us believe. Dozens of times each year people are attacked and not infrequently killed by cougars, bears, and a sundry of other aggressive critters (dogs, birds, crocs, alligators and even deer). Don Zaidle has done a masterful job of describing and analyzing what happened and why. His prose is hair-raising in its suspense and candor. All stories in his book are based on actual encounters, which makes the book all the more chilling and worthwhile. After reading this, you will take a whole new look at Mother Nature, and you may never look at any wild animal in the same way again!
