Book shares funny anecdotes about life as a park ranger

Written by 

out delozierSo, what does one do when a sedated bear wakes up in the back seat of a helicopter mid-flight or in your office while you’re on the phone or in your car while you’re driving down the highway?

Retired National Park Service ranger Kim DeLozier knows and he tells all about it in his new book, Bear in the Back Seat. The book shares funny and family-friendly accounts of DeLozier’s 30 plus years as a wildlife biologist in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, dealing with hormonally-crazed elk, homicidal wild boars, hopelessly timid wolves and nine million tourists.  The book sells for $11.99 in softcover and is available at Great Smoky Mountains Association bookstores in Tennessee and North Carolina and on its website. Assisting DeLozier in the writing is Carolyn Jourdan, a Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Proceeds from the book support the national park. Great Smoky Mountains Association is the oldest non-profit funding partner of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
