Ghost grizzlies by David Petersen( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The grizzly is naturally averse to human contact and is unlikely to attack a person unless provoked. By contrast, human reprisals have been brutal. Demonized along with wolves and other 'inconvenient' wild species throughout our history, grizzlies have suffered incessant attacks by the 'tamers' of our western lands. As with other native American species, both human and nonhuman, the fate of the grizzly has come to symbolize the fate of wildness itself." From the bookjacket

In the shadow of the Sabertooth : a renegade naturalist considers global warming, the first Americans and the terrible beasts of the Pleistocene by Doug Peacock( Book )

For the past 12,000 years, the earth has experienced a relatively stable climate. Today, that predictability has ended, and global warming is our new reality. Yet such shifting weather patterns threatened Homo sapiens once before, right here in North America as the continent was first being colonized. About 15,000 years ago, the weather began to warm, melting the glaciers of the Late Pleistocene and driving the beasts of the Ice Age toward extinction. In this new landscape, humans managed to adapt to unfamiliar habitats and dangerous creatures in the midst of a wildly fluctuating climate. Are there lessons for modern people lingering along this ancient trail? The author explores the full range of climate change, from the death of the Pleistocene megafauna to the disappearance of today's ice
