Alaska Bear Tales

Alaska Bear Tales captures man's struggle for survival in a bear's jaws. In Alaska this life or death situation includes black, brown/grizzly and polar bears. Larry Kaniut chronicles bear-man encounters from false charge through fatality, interviewing not only the victim of the bear's wrath, but also the rescuer, spouse, family member and doctor. Kaniut's intent was to present enough encounters to warn the reader to be careful in bear country.

In addition to the bear's nature and characteristics, this comprehensive book covers weaponry, humor, nuisance animals, rules, "ursulaneous" and advice for bear mauling avoidance. A rich annotated bibliography is worth the price of the book. Other features include letters and personal diaries. This is a must read for anyone who loves bears, travels in bear country or loves adventure of the highest order.
