Publisher's Summary

In Wildlife Wars, Terry Grosz serves up fascinating stories - alternately hair-raising, hilarious, and heart-wrenching - from his 30-year struggle to protect wildlife in America. A natural storyteller, Grosz writes about the remarkable characters he met - on both sides of the law - as he matched wits with elk poachers, salmon snaggers, commercial-market duck hunters, and a host of other law-breakers. Best of all, though, these stories are so remarkably entertaining you won't want to put them down. Wildlife Wars is the winner of the 2000 National Outdoor Book Award, Nature and the Environment Category.

    "Good stories, annoying author"

    Overall the book was interesting and I learned a lot about the duties of fish and game enforcement officers, but I can't overemphasize how often the author mentioned his enormous size. It was disgusting. Literally hundreds of times he says how huge he is and is so proud of it that by the end of the book I was tired of hearing from him. If you can live with that it's worth a read.

    "Comically bad writing"

    The stories are fine, but the writing is atrocious. The stories should just have been told orally. The writing definitely takes away from the stories.

    Story
    "Author is his own biggest fan."

    Couldn't finish this book. If you like listening to a guy praising himself, referencing his "impressive size no less than 200 times, and mistake writing tickets for "hunting his fellow man", then go for it. Not terrible stories, once you get past all the self-praise.

    Story
    "Interesting perspective"

    I enjoyed this book, probably won't be one that I re-read. The book is a collection of memoir essays by a California game warden so it was an interesting perspective on conservation from someone completely dedicated to preserving nature but, as he describes himself "not exactly a tree-hugger." I don't think it's meant to be bombed right through since the stories can get a little repetitive, so I would suggest listening to a story or two between other books.

    "Learn how to pronounce the words correctly"

    Learn how to pronounce the words correctly! It's irritating to hear common names of things pronounced incorrectly in these stories. Chew-Car is not the name of a common upland species of bird (chukar). Tule elk are not called toolie elk. When you get it wrong it really detracts, but this book was well written even if not well read.

    Story
    "Excellent story-telling, excellent narration."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    On the edge of my seat through the whole book. Exciting and edgy. I love wild-life and so does Terry Grosz who is badass and gets the bad guys.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Terry Grosz is a big, funny, burly tough guy who loves to hunt his fellow man in order to protect ducks and deer. I love that combination. He writes about his experiences sitting amid thousands of ducks and the almost religious experience of being alone in nature. But he writes better than me so it isn't corny. And the narrators voice is deep and manly and fits the character perfectly.

    Story
    "300 pounds"

    How many bloody times do you have to mention your weight? Every chapter apparently. That aside it's an interesting story about game wardening in the 1960's.
