Yes. It's a good one. But I prefer "Some Bears Kill" (same author). This one has stories of only people who have survived bear attacks, and gives an insight of what people do in order to stay alive, mistakes made, and smart moves.

Looks interesting. I just added it to my wish list. Kind of sounds similar to Rick Rydell's book. An enjoyable read too if you ever get a chance:

Larry has a whole list of bear books out. I knew a couple of the stories he wrote about, couple survived and two didn't.

But the one photo I have that tells the best story without words is one I posted before.

Taken in the early 60's, the guy was a guide in Kodiak that is holding the broken rifle... The rest is self explanitory...
