Comments to eBook In Bear Country: Adventures among North America's Largest Predators
uspeh
This is a fantastic read that has extremely well written accounts of human and bear interactions. It mainly focuses on grizzly and black bears with some great tales about polar bears at the end. The author, Jake MacDonald, has a hint of Paul Theroux in his writing, with his ability to analyze himself, people and situations with a sort of hilarious sarcasm. One of the best bear books that I have read in years, and trust me, I have read a lot of them.

Very enjoyable book if you are into bears. Also if you like this book you will really like the book about cougars called "Cat Attacks". Both books will keep you safe in the woods. As the habitat gets smaller for these animals they will more and more be in your back yard.

Great writing. Unbiased. Easy read.

This was a fantastic read. Gripping tales of MacDonald's own bear experiences coupled with tales of others. 1/3 Grizzly, 1/3 Black Bear, 1/3 Polar Bear. As an avid outdoors woman I often have bears on my mind. This book both made me much more fearful and much less scared at the same time. I don't know if it was a good thing but I absolutely recommend this book!
