9780070386990: Attacked!: By Beasts of Prey and Other Deadly Creatures - True Stories of Survivors

Everyone loves a good thriller. Like some of the best books in that genre. Attacked! will hook you from the first page. But this is no complex tale of international intrigue or terrorist plots. Instead, it's a spellbinder with a decidedly outdoor/adventure bent, filled with gripping, real-life stories of animal attacks and human survival. Personally selected by award-winning yarn-spinner John Long, each tale of man-eating tigers, sharks, rogue elephants, bears, and other wild creatures will both terrify and amaze you.

From the Back Cover:

"I was lying on my back with the lion on top of me, its front legs wrapped around me and its paws under my shoulder . . . the lion paused."

"All of a sudden the bear plunged through the top of our lean-to with a bellowing roar."

"With awful revulsion my mind came into focus, and I realized my predicament: a shark had me in his jaws."

You'll find these and many other stark situations and grim predicaments in this pulse-pounding collection of true stories from around the globe. Each account paints a powerful image of man and beast and the excruciating struggle to survive.

Noted outdoor writer John Long has selected the tales in this anthology and uses them to unveil a lesson for understanding the laws of the wild, the nature of the attack.

John Long's award-winning stories have been widely anthologized, and more than 750,000 copies of his instructional outdoor books are in print. His novella, Rogue's Babylon, was the basis for the script of the Sylvester Stallone thriller, Cliffhanger.
