Back cover copy

The reports and eyewitness accounts in Man Eaters span years and the globe, ranging from desolate places to breathtaking Edens where the beauty of the land stands in contrast to the tragedy. Some of the stories are legendary - "The Man-Eaters of Tsavo," for instance. Some, like the grizzly attacks in national parks, were once newspaper headlines. Others are obscure events of individual heroism and ordeal, no less gripping.The rewards of the outdoor life provide something deep and satisfying in many of us, but, as this anthology shows, the wild country that sustains us can also kill us. (6 x 9, 288 pages, color photos)Lamar Underwood is a former Editor-in-Chief of Sports Afield and Outdoor Life magazines, and is presently editorial director of the Outdoor Magazine Group of Harris Publications in New York.
