What do we know about black and grizzly bears and how can this knowledge be used to avoid bear attacks?

Bear Attacks is for everyone who hikes, camps, or visits bear country – and for anyone who wants to know more about these sometimes fearsome but always fascinating wild creatures. By: Stephen Herrero(Author). 294 pages, b/w photos, b/w illustrations. Publisher: Lyons Press. This is the single greatest academic look at bear attacks.

What causes bear attacks? When should you play dead and when should you fight an attacking bear? What do we know about black and grizzly bears and how can this. Herrero is so exhaustive in his efforts to describe every type of bear attack that after a while you wonder how you can possibly survive a night outside. It seems that in every situation, no matter what you do to avoid a mauling there is a story where it leads to a mauling. But his complete look at all types of maulings comes to two conclusions.

Revised, updated, and with a new introduction by the author.

I have just finished reading the revised edition (copyright 2002) of Bear Attacks by Stephen Herrero. I read it as a follow-up to Backcountry Bear Basics (copyright 2006) by Dave Smith Backcountry Bear Basics: The Definitive Guide to Avoiding Unpleasant Encounters (Mountaineers Outdoor Basics). I highly recommend both books for anyone living, working or recreating in what they call "bear country". Both books provide current information on bear behavior, bear management, and best practices for black and brown (grizzly) bears with a focus on minimizing human-bear interactions to the detriment of both. Both books also point out the lifestyle and behavioral differences between black and brown (grizzly) bears. As one who ranches and recreates in "bear country", and has also worked in the back-country of Alaska and Montana, and who enjoys hiking, camping and fishing in our national and state parks I found the practical information presented to be well-documented and well-written and up to date. The picture quality in Bear Attacks is not high and all are black and white pictures. I especially appreciated Chapter 17 (the last chapter in Bear Attacks) on Bear Management. Dr. Herrero clearly and succinctly describes the current state of the challenges we face to coexist (or not) with bears. There may be added value for some to read Chapter 17 first to gain the practical perspective Dr. Herrero provides and
then go back and read the rest of his book. Knowing his practical perspective early would have helped me better understand some of his comments and hypotheses in the earlier chapters. I also appreciated the information and perspectives gained from Dr. Herrero's work with brown (grizzly) bears in Italy, and how they have adapted in order to survive. Just to learn there are Italian grizzly bears was news to me! Overall, Dr. Herrero's book raises the question, "what is a bear worth?", and the short answer is: at least worth the price of this book (and Dave Smith's Backcountry Bear Basics) and the effort to take the practical advice therein and be bear aware in "bear country" for the safety and sake of all who travel there.
JUST DO IT
Very informative, I used as many of Mr. Herrero's recommended bear avoidance techniques on a recent trip to Montana. As we were headed south on a trail we noticed a very large and seemingly fresh set of Brown bear tracks headed north (towards us). After reading this book, for the first time on any backpacking trip I rigged a small titanium cooking pot on my pack belt using a D-ring to bang it on around every blind corner and hill crest. I'd like to think we notified the Brown bear of our presence on the trail and gave him an early exit before we meet. Some of the stories in this book are graphic and disturbing and you will not forget them while out on the trail. That being said our biggest threat in the forest was not from any bear it was from dry conditions and lighting storms starting fires. I recommend studying up on Forest fires as well as Bear attacks!

This is a good book how about basic behaviors of bears. Now I'm no bear expert by any means but I do like to have a grip and working knowledge of the large predators in our surroundings. If you haven't read a book about bear behavior I would recommend this book. It is an easy read does not bore you and adds to your knowledge so you can be a bit more bear aware when out in the great wild wilderness camping, hiking, hunting or fishing.

This book was recommended to me by bear biologists and rangers from the NPS in Alaska who spend their lives working in very dense bear areas. I found the book to be very readable and based on fact instead of emotions and opinions. I learned a great deal from the book and read some sections twice before venturing out into the Alaska backcountry to photograph Brown Bears. The best defense, or safety, when in bear country is knowledge. Much of what you learn in this book is counter-intuitive ! Even after spending 30+ years around bears (Black Bears) I really learned a LOT of useful information. The author also do a great job of backing up any claims with data and evidence -- versus opinion. I wish this book was available on Kindle too.

Thrilling and informative book! This book was written by the authority on bear attacks in North America. There are graphic descriptions of real attacks that can be difficult to read, but I'm glad I read it, for the safety of my family and friends. If you plan to visit bear country (black or brown bear), at least one person in your party should read this book and use the advice of the author, who has studied all reported bear attacks in North America for decades.

A fascinating, if frightening, journey into bear country. But there is much wisdom to be learned by others' bear encounters, in this case bear attacks. Mr. Herrero shares these stories and his vast knowledge of bears, to help keep people safe out in the wilds. (And "the wilds," regarding black bears in particular, could be your backyard or nearby dump.) Knowledge is power in the matter of bears, as is a reputable bear spray!
Capella
Really good book written by a bear expert. He has a slightly different perspective than most authors writing about bear attacks. I really enjoyed this book and his point of view. Highly recommend!
Extremely informative book -- we need the knowledge as we're going to Polebridge, MT in 2017 late in the year -- staying on 10 acres all by ourselves surrounded by National Forest. Plan on a lot of hiking off the grid. Excellent book, great information.
