    Story
    (141)

    The real stories behind the scenery of America’s national parks. For 12 years, Andrea Lankford lived in the biggest, most impressive national parks in the world, working a job she loved. She chaperoned baby sea turtles on their journey to sea. She pursued bad guys on her galloping patrol horse. She jumped into rescue helicopters bound for the heart of the Grand Canyon. She won arguments with bears. She slept with a few too many rattlesnakes. Hell yeah, it was the best job in the world! Fortunately, Andrea survived it.

    Story

    At times the story seemed a little disjointed as the author cycled back and forth from one park to the next and back again, but overall it was a nice easy listen that was entertaining as a whole for a long drive across the western US. I could have lived without the foreshadowing in the forward chapter, but it didn't diminish my overall enjoyment.

  • Interstate 69: The Unfinished History of the Last Great American Highway

    Story

    In the works for more than twenty years, Interstate 69 has been both eagerly anticipated as an economic godsend and the center of a firestorm of protests by local environmentalists, farmers, ranchers, anarchists, and others who question both the wisdom of building more highways and the merits of globalization. Part history, part travelogue, Interstate 69 chronicles the last great highway project in America, introducing the people who have worked tirelessly to build it or stop it from being built, and the many places it would change forever.

    Story

    A bit of a history buff, and a long haul trucker, I thought a book about I-69 would be fascinating. In reality, it nearly put me to sleep behind the wheel. The prose rambles, seems disconnected, and the narrator has the ability to cause a driver to lapse into a definite road coma. Ultimately, I couldn't get past halfway.
