A Park Ranger's Life

A wild bear who favors Kentucky Fried Chicken

A fugitive wanted in eight states

A dog that saved his owner’s life

Wildland firefighters battling nature and fire

A ghost haunting a colonial mansion

Hikers who stayed lost because they thought the searchers calling their names were wild animals

National Park Rangers who risk their lives to make our parks safe and preserve them for the future.

These are just a few of the characters you will meet in these stories drawn from the 32 year career of a National Park Ranger. You will learn what it takes to be a Park Ranger, what threats to visitors and resources they deal with on a daily basis, and what you can do to help protect and preserve our national heritage showcased in these preserves honored and envied the world over. These are tales of humor, drama, and tragedy set in our National Parks.

I am currently working on the final edits for this book based on true stories from my career as a National Park Ranger. The title is "A Park Ranger's Life: True Stories from Thirty Two Years Protecting Our National Parks." Final publication and availability should be ready in approximately two months. I will keep you posted.
