It's a memoir by a park ranger about park rangering, but it's not nature hikes and checking trees for moss. It's grittier than that—more about crime and law enforcement. It turns out that plenty of folks make trouble in state parks. Rangering organizations might not be well prepared for this; e.g., the ranger office "evidence locker" might be just a box. But ready or not, there is crime and there is trouble. Down these mean dirt roads a man must go who is not himself mean; he emerges worse off but with some interesting stories. Check it out.
