✏The Bear s Embrace Book Summary : On a sunny fall day in 1983, Patricia Van Tighem and her husband, Trevor Jang, were brutally attacked by a bear while hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Jang was severely hurt, but Van Tighem suffered even more serious, disfiguring injuries, and that she survived was a miracle. A gifted writer, Van Tighem crafted a vivid and startling account of the attack. But her recovery was just as disturbing. Her numerous reconstructive surgeries were painful; her facial disfigurement, including the loss of an eye, isolated her; and the nightmares that haunted her carried their own psychological burden. The Bear’s Embrace garnered much praise when it was first published in 2000. With honesty and eloquence, the book tells of the unpredictability of life, of bravery, terror, rage, and love, of what it means to look and feel different in a culture that values perfection. Deeply moving and often astonishing, The Bear’s Embrace is an inspiring story of human perseverance and self­knowledge. Tragically, Van Tighem could no longer live with her pain and ended her life in 2005. In this new edition, her sister, Margaret Van Tighem, writes an affecting afterword remembering Patricia and her indomitable spirit and strength.

✏Blindsided Book Summary : Jim Cole has spent years tramping into the depths of places like Alaska, Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park in search of grizzlies, seeing these magnificent, powerful and reclusive animals at their most unguarded—foraging, fishing, caring for cubs, or simply lying in the backcountry sunshine. At times, he's been surrounded by dozens of bears deep in the wilderness, yet has never felt threatened by these incredible and misunderstood creatures. Even after being mauled by a grizzly in 1993, Jim eagerly trekked annually into the bears' habitat, armed only with bear spray, his camera, and his knowledge of how to stay safe. But nothing could have prepared him for May 23, 200, when he was attacked in Yellowstone by a mother grizzly who felt that his presence threatened her cub. The bear literally ripped off most of his face, blinded him in one eye, and savaged him nearly to the point of death. Jim was left sightless, bleeding, wounded and alone in the wilderness. He managed to find his way several miles through the wild country back to a main road, where passersby found him. In part, Blindsided is a gripping, detailed account of that fateful day—how Jim survived an assault by one of the most unstoppable predators on earth and managed to carry himself to safety despite his gruesome injuries. It's also the story of how he recovered with the help and support of friends, family and a dedicated medical team, but perhaps most importantly, the book is a love story between and man and animal, a clear-eyed and affectionate look at the marvel that is the grizzly bear—its astonishing habits and intelligence, the threats it faces at the hand of man, and its hopes for the future.

Of the hiker who--though armed with only a knife--survived a 30-minute nightmare with a cougar. . .of the backcountry snowboarder buried alive by an avalanche, saved with only minutes to spare. . .of the outdoorsman pinned by an 800-pound boulder who freed himself by amputating his own arm.

✏Bear Attacks The Deadly Truth Book Summary : Excerpt from Chapter 4, Carcass Defence Behaviour: "They had snowshoes on, as there were patches of snow up to three feet deep. Terry was about 25 yards ahead of Joe and had just worked his way through a thick patch of alder when he came to an elevated log that crossed the flag line. Joe was blazing station # 692 with his axe as Terry put his right snowshoe over the log. Terry looked ahead at a spruce tree about 40 feet away and saw what looked like a porcupine moving through the low, downward-hanging limbs. A funny feeling in his stomach caused Terry to pull his snowshoe-clad-foot back over the log. When his foot hit the ground, a large grizzly exploded out from under the limbs and came directly at him. Terry’s shock turned to terror as he screamed and reached for his bear mace in the front pocket of his cruise vest; the bear had come silently, but Terry’s scream caused it to stop 20 feet away. Quickly, he turned and yelled at Joe, “Grizzly,” as he pulled the bear spray from his vest. When he turned back, the bear was lunging at him, but when he made eye contact, the grizzly again hesitated. The bear’s stare was the most awful, deadly-looking thing Terry had ever seen, and he knew that the bear was about to rip him to shreds. Terry then realised that he had to stand his ground in order to save himself. He dropped the bear spray and went for the 12 gauge Mossberg Slugster that was slung across his back. The grizzly had started its final charge when the first dose of 00 buckshot hit it in the face at seven feet—the bear stopped, but didn’t go down. The second round of buckshot hit the bear’s face again, but the bear was still standing. Terry desperately worked his last shell into the chamber—it was a slug. When the gun went off, the grizzly was knocked over backwards. Meanwhile, Joe had done a very brave thing: Instead of running away from the battle for life that was unfolding in front of him, he ran up behind Terry to help him. The bear went wild; it was spinning around on its side, roaring and bellowing at the top of its lungs. Terry ripped his vest off and shoved it at Joe, yelling, “Get me more ammo quick, get a slug round.” Joe tore into the vest, pulling the contents from the back pocket; he found birdshot, then buckshot, and finally, several slug shells. He slapped them into Terry’s waiting hand. The grizzly was up and turning towards them when the slug ripped into its chest just behind the right front leg. The bear collapsed on its side and lay still for a moment, then jumped up and ran to their right, stumbling and bellowing as it went out of sight. They could see that the grizzly still had ample power, and it sounded like the bear was coming around behind them in the timber. Then, all of a sudden, it was very quiet. Terry and Joe looked at each other; they couldn’t believe they had survived the attack. But they had to get back to the heli-site without being ambushed. What a terrible situation. After calming down a bit and putting more ammunition in the shotgun, they gathered up their equipment and started back down the traverse. They moved slowly, back to back, Terry with the gun ready and Joe holding two cans of bear spray. They expected an explosion of fury to come at them any second from the thick brush. A heavy dose of adrenaline was surging through their bodies. They were breathing in gulps. It had started snowing when they initiated their retreat, which seemed like a bad omen. It seemed to take forever to get back to the drop site, but what a relief it was to be in the open slide area. They moved to the center of the slide runout; this allowed them to see all around for a hundred yards. Joe radioed for the helicopter to come pick them up right away, as they had been attacked by a bear, and it might still be stalking them. Terry had faced a horrible death up close and knew that the awful glare of the bear’s eyes would be etched in his mind forever."

✏Backcountry Bear Basics Book Summary : * Practical strategies for avoiding dangerous bear encounters * Debunks commonly held myths about people and bears * Provides tested strategies to help you avoid conflict with black bears and grizzliesBear expert Dave Smith gives you the basics - like how to choose a good campsite and properly store your food so that you don't have to worry whether that pepper spray you brought will work on the bear that wanders into camp. He debunks commonly held myths about people and bears. Forinstance, menstruating women don't have to stay out of bear country, he says. And no, don't roll up in a ball when faced with a charging bear. So much of conventional wisdom about bears is often just plain bad advice; Smith tells you what you should do instead and why. He also reviews specific outdoor activities - from fishing to mountain biking to hiking with young children to trail running - assessing the likelihood of bear encounters and suggesting tactics for coping in different settings and situations. This second edition incorporates new research (Do bear bells work? Does tent color or shape make a difference in attracting bears?) and adds more charts and sidebars to make material accessible at a glance. Smith provides key information on bear behavior and biology to help you understand, rather than fear, this most misunderstood animal. This book is in the Mountaineers Outdoor Basics series.
