Description

Attacks by bears, cougars, sharks, alligators, snakes, lions, tigers, and more. From The Birds to Jaws, Anaconda to "When Animals Attack," humans have had a constant fascination with, and fear of, the many dangers posed by predatory animals. This compelling book explores situations where wild animals have made humans their prey - from a sow grizzly defending her cubs against a human intruder and a rattlesnake biting a hiker who has inadvertently crossed into the snake's territory, to an African lion turning on a hunter and savagely attacking him. Bears, cougars, sharks, alligators, snakes, lions, tigers, elephants, Cape buffalo - all of these animals, and more, have been involved in savage encounters with humans. Why do such incidents occur? How have people fared in such encounters? How can they be avoided? What can you do if you find yourself under attack? Man Eaters is a collection of essays - some new, some classic - of animal attacks on unsuspecting people. Assembled by Lamar Underwood, past editor of Sports Afield and Outdoor Life magazines, and the author of the novel, On Dangerous Ground, Man Eaters is a gripping collection, guaranteed to grab you in its jaws and hold you as you read one terrifying tale after another.show more
