Oh, Ranger! True Stories from our National ParksItem#: 255702
Oh, Ranger! provides an insider's view into the most beautiful and culturally significant treasures in America. Oh, Ranger! is a collection of exciting stories told directly by the experts - national park rangers. From animal encounters to fire fighting and search and rescue missions, rangers share their most memorable, life changing experiences.
This book is a tribute to National Park Service employees everywhere and was inspired by the original storybook written in 1928 by Horace Albright, the first superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. His memory lives on in the heroic actions of all those who proudly wear the instantly recognizable green and grey and flat hat - the rangers. These are the men and women who work hard to protect and preserve our national parks for the enjoyment of millions of visitors, now and in future generations.

I love reading these stories before I go to bed as a way to disconnect from the day. They are generally short, thus perfect for one reading and take you right to the action. I wish the stories were dated so that you could tell when they are happening, although that is not critical. They are told by rangers, so some are better story-tellers than others, but they all come from the heart and are told with the ring of truth from people who have been there, done that. So glad I bought this book and plan to share it with family and friends.
