'Nice bear. I am not going to hurt you. I am far from tasty and I am sure you are not interested in trying me out.' Only someone with wide experience in the hush and a deep understanding of bear behaviour could talk a mother grizzly bear with a cub out of attacking him as it was poised to lunge -- and only someone as uncon-ventional as Keith Scott would even try. In this book, Keith tells that unforgettable story and many more as he shares his knowledge of the continent's greatest carnivores and shows us their lives in page after page of stunning photographs.
