Roland Cheek

Author Roland Cheekabout this book: Each time I pick up this book and see my picture, or read my name on its spine, I blush. Learning To Talk Bear, you see, is a composite of information gathered from many sources and I'm merely the vehicle for its dissemination.

With an angry grizzly bearing down at express-train speed from thirty feet. I remember thinking, "How is this going to come out". The bear was small for a grizzly, perhaps a hundred and eighty pounds. I outweighed it. But, shod as I was in a pair of leather hiking boots and clad in tennis shorts and a T-shirt--none of which seemed formidable enough to deter a bruin bent on brigandage--there was no way I'd come out ahead in a kicking match. Neither was I armed. My opponent's clacking teeth (now deafening) and long claws (still churning) might as well have been sweat-seeking missiles honing in on the drippiest thing on that ridge.

At twelve feet I thought to swing my camera-laden daypack at its face and step behind a pine tree. I really had no plan, no escape, not even untidy, shorts-wetting fear.

Still madly shouting, I raised the daypack. At ten feet the bear slowed, stopped, turned, and began pacing away.

Had I just Learned To Talk Bear?
