This book is for everyone who camps, hikes, or visits bear country -and for anyone who wants to learn more about these fearsome but always fascinating wild creatures. (6 x 9, 304 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, charts)Stephen Herrero is a professor at the University of Calgary. He is recognized throughout the world as a leading authority on bears.
