Hunters are advised to carry bells so bears can hear them coming and pepper spray to chase bears away. However, there’s a joke tied to this reasoning. How do you tell the difference between black bear and grizzly bear scat? Black bear scat is full of berry seeds, and grizzly bear scat is full of bells and smells like pepper.

About author Kristine K. Stevens and her travel book

Book Cover200Kristine is the author of "If Your Dream Doesn't Scare You, It Isn't Big Enough: A Solo Journey Around the World." This nonfiction book tells the story of how she sold her house, quit her job and traveled around the world.

Carrying a backpack and the naïve belief that the trip was nothing more than a six-month-long vacation, she hit the road. Little did Kristine know that she was completing a pilgrimage that would change her life forever.

Kirkus Book Review: "... Stevens makes a friendly, relatable narrator ... plenty of colorful stories to make this an enjoyable, inspiring read... An often sweet memoir about finding oneself in many different places."
