Worth Reading if You Spend Time in Any American Park!
Rick has written a great book that shows the many hats a NPS Ranger must wear. From mechanic,to EMT to law enforcement officer these are just a few of the duties of a NPS Ranger. Please take the time to read about his experiences and his life of dedication to the park program and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the real life story of a Ranger and how he Rangered Up. I have enjoyed many of the parks that Rick has worked in and never give it any thought of the wide range of duties Rangers are required to work and hope you enjoy this great book. Jim Franklin
