Have you ever feared the approach of a grizzly, the spray of a skunk, or an army of cockroaches in the kitchen? As we humans encroach on their territory, we are bound to meet animals—be they bears, bison, or mountain lions; smaller wildlife like turkeys or foxes; or creepy crawlies like rats, ticks, and mice. So, do you run from a coyote or stand your ground? What are the rules for facing a moose up close? And how deadly, really, are black widow spiders, rattlesnakes, and sharks? Rachel Levin's lighthearted yet fact-packed guide to 50 animal encounters is full of expert advice, eye-opening anecdotes, and engaging color illustrations.
