Reader Review for "A Park Ranger's Life"

The following is taken from the National Parks Traveler Website.

Bruce Bytnar's book is a masterpiece of behind-the-scenes life in the National Park Service. He has written a fun and compelling work that best reveals a perspectice from the field. I bought the book on the Blue Ridge Parkway and enjoyed his experience and commentary. If I ran a park area I would insist every park employee read this book. His discussion of "government fads" whether it be cars or policies is worth every penny in cost to purchase.

However, I would also say that park management deserves a right to explain their side of this fascinating story, and that the Blue ridge PKWY itself is one of the most complicated managment units in the national park system itself.
