Surviving Sharks and Other Dangerous Creatures

On rare occasions, wild animals like cougars, grizzly bears and alligators can pose a deadly threat to humans. Sometimes with little or no warning, wild animals attack. Few will pick a fight with humans, but most will defend themselves if they are cornered or surprised or defending their young.

In this book you will read about the incredible life-and-death ordeals of young people who battled ferocious wild animals, such as a merciless great white shark off the coast of California and an enraged moose in the winter woods of Maine. These stories are based on true accounts ripped from the headlines.
