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. or call 888.898.9102, Ext. 222 or 254.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
