Synopses & Reviews
Amusing and informative, Hey Ranger! teaches as it entertains with tales of boat ramp misadventures, lost Afghani campers, encounters with wild animals, dumb crooks, and more. A chapter, "Tales from the Wild Side," brings together unusual incidents from NPS reports, and a concluding essay, "Don't Be a Victim of Your Vacation," advises visitors on how to avoid being a story on the evening news.
In his thirty years with the National Park Service, Jim Burnett has seen it all: boat ramp mishaps that have sent cars into the water; skunks in the outhouse and bears at the dumpser; visitors looking for the bridge over the Grand Canyon.
