Man-eating creatures roam, stalk, crouch, wait, leap, slither, swim, crawl, perch, and attack in the pages of this gripping Mammoth Book. Drawn from newspapers and autobiographies, the compelling real-life stories in this volume begin with "Danger in the Home," which includes not only accounts of attacks by domestic pets and farm animals but also shocking tales of cougars invading towns in Montana and polar bears terrorizing Alaskan suburbs. After exploration "Out on the Plains"—with riveting narratives of big cats from nonfiction adventures like Beryl Markham''s West With the Night as well as of buffalo, bison, dingos, and rhinos—editor Alex MacCormick, herself the author of Shark Attacks, surveys the perils presented by marine predators like orcas, octopi, jellyfish, and giant clams "Beneath the Waves," including a gory meeting between a shark and a member of the British royal family in the Caribbean. MacCormick then travels "Up the Creek" among alligators and terrifying varieties of river snakes. An extract from David Fletcher''s hair-raising tale with a vengeful 1200-pound grizzly in Hunted highlights the treacheries that lie "In the Wilderness," while "Jungle Stories" takes the reader into nail-biting accounts of man meeting man-eating enemies ranging from tigers to soldier ants.
