In Wildlife Wars, Terry Grosz serves up fascinating stories - alternately hair-raising, hilarious, and heart-wrenching - from his 30-year struggle to protect wildlife in America. A natural storyteller, Grosz writes about the remarkable characters he met - on both sides of the law - as he matched wits with elk poachers, salmon snaggers, commercial-market duck hunters, and a host of other law-breakers. Best of all, though, these stories are so remarkably entertaining you won't want to put them down. Wildlife Wars is the winner of the 2000 National Outdoor Book Award, Nature and the Environment Category.
The stories are written with a very light, descriptive style. The writing is so vivid, it feels as if you are right along side Warden Grosz as he chases poachers and protects California's wildlife. I could listen to it again and again.
Great Game Warden Stories
Terry tells a good story. I’ve read a good amount of game warden stories from Maine by John Ford and Tommy Carbone, and Terry’s district of northern California is very different terrain making for a great read. He led an amazing life and career. This one I listened as an audiobook and the narrator was good too.
Setting the bar
Keeps you on the edge of your seat! I’ve listened to this book 4 times now and will continue. By the end you wish there was more tales to tell of the never ending wildlife wars! This was my first audio book and it set the bar high!
