In the Presence of Grizzlies PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

In the Presence of Grizzlies free pdf The emotional mindset behind reason is humility, a condition virtually guaranteed by a stroll through grizzly country, and a precursor to respect and tolerance for all other beings. Together, the authors delve into the complex dynamics that characterize modern bonds between people and the great bear. They explore a wide range of human-grizzly encounters through interviews with biologists, mauling victims, hunters, and photographers who have had close contact with bears. To these they add unique portraits-sketches of real grizzlies from the viewpoint of the bear-drawn from Doug's extensive knowledge of bear behavior, considered by many people to be the most authoritative in the world. Filling a gap in the literature, "In the Presence of Grizzlies" eclipses existing books on bear behavior, attacks, and how-to pamphlets, providing readers with a twenty-first-century context for revisiting the original shudder of Homo sapiens-the bear in the cave of our genesis-and finding a measure of familiarity and value there.
