Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Author Tim Rubbert has hiked more than 5,000 miles in grizzly country and encountered hundreds of bears. No one knows how to avoid a bear encounter--or how to react if you do see a bear--better than Tim. This book distills his vast experience into practical instructions that are easy to follow on the trail and in camp. These are Tim's personal "lessons learned" for safe travel. Tim illustrates each lesson with descriptions of actual bear encounters in Yellowstone, Glacier, and Denali national parks, often with on-the-scene photographs. After reading this book, hikers and backpackers will have the knowledge and confidence to travel safely in bear country.
