Format: Paperback
I hope I never have to confront a grizzly bear or a cougar, but given there are grizzly bears near our ski condo and cougars have been seen in a local nature preserve I'm not taking chances.

You probably know the basics of hanging your food in a tree and not letting bears see your cooler in your car. This little book goes way beyond the basics. With a chapter per animal, it explains animal behavior and takes you through your options. You can find out whether a bear is predatory, how to select a campsite and what a cougar does before it pounces. Be careful of those buffalo in Yellowstone - it lists the other parks where you might find them too. It also tells you about javelinas - a risk I had never considered.

There is an excellent section on pepper spray. It has good statistics - like the weight of a moose or the number of people that die of rabies. Your odds of getting eaten alive are pretty low - but why take chances. As it says "Hiking in grizzly country is dangerous and that's all there is to it."

Read this book - the techniques for each animal are different.

We are planning a family vacation to a location with several of the animals in this book and have been very pleased by the contents. We've been able to use it as a read aloud, talk about sort of book with our children. Each chapter starts with a possible encounter and in several cases our children thought the thing to do was the exact wrong thing (usually running like mad).

About me: Long-time "civilized" camping experience, but a novice to overnight hiking and camping in the wilds where things can tear you up and eat a person. Now...
About this book: I appreciate the brevity and how many different kinds of animals it described. Seems like a good book. I won't know until I'm attacked!

This short little book teaches the ins and outs of interacting with wildlife that could consider you an appetizer. Cougars, bears, coyotes, and other wildlife are written about expertly here. Did you know that with a Grizzly Bear you would normally play dead, because you are viewed as a threat, but with a black bear never play dead, as they normally would attack you to eat you, not defend (unless you mess with their cubs.)

Walking sticks are vital tools, and vigilance is necessary. This is a nice, snappy, concise guide on how to surivie when confronted by a predatory life form.
