Publisher's Summary

  • Six-time Wall Street Journal Top-10 best-selling author, Audible Top-10 best-selling audiobook, and Amazon All Star!

This is the second volume in a best-selling series of true stories from "[a]n extraordinary landscape populated with befuddled bears, hormonally-crazed elk, homicidal wild boars, hopelessly timid wolves, and nine million tourists, some of whom are clueless." In Kim DeLozier's world, when sedated wild black bears wake up unexpectedly in the back seat of a helicopter in mid-flight, or in his car as he's driving down the highway, or in his office while he's talking on the phone, it's just another day in the park.

You'll love seeing Kim and a fellow ranger tested as they bravely take on the task of dealing with enraged wild boars, elk, and more. A hilarious, heartwarming, and heartbreaking memoir by the chief wildlife ranger in the number-one most popular family vacation destination in the USA, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For over 30 years, Kim DeLozier acted as a referee in the wild, trying to protect millions of park visitors from one of the densest populations of wild black bears in America - and the bears from tourists who get too close.

    Story
    "I could hardly put my earphones Down."

    Kim is an entertaining author, and the reader made me feel like I was right there in the Smokies listening to a live wildlife ranger. Kim's stories come out of his own personal experiences.

    I was moved by his compassion for the animals, from the bears to the bats to the hogs to the elk. He risked his life for the preservation of the animals and for the park. He also provides guidelines for encountering a bear, and gives strict warnings about not feeding any wild animal.

    I highly recommend this book, for outdoor adventurers as well as for city slickers.

    Story
    "A great story that will entertain and educate"

    This book is about another under appreciated essential occupation we need in our Nation's National Parks. These professionals keep the wildlife and the "dumb" visitors safe at their peril. The book was entertaining but also and education in how people treat the natural wonders of our Nation. Very enjoyable. Read book 1 too.
