Here are grisly tales of grizzly (and lion and snake and crocodile) encounters to chill the heart of the armchair traveler. Underwood, a former editor-in-chief of Sports Afield magazine, acknowledges that most people stand a much higher chance of being hit by a bus than being consumed by a bear. "And yet...," he adds, ominously. His collection of news stories, legends, and eyewitness reports spans the globe and an entire century. Some of the stories sound a cautionary note about people's aggressive and foolish behavior around wildlife. Others are frankly sensationalized accounts of animals run amok. The work has no index; it does have a dustjacket with a close-up photo of a roaring bear that would give any hiker pause. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
