  Ranger Confidential

For twelve years Andrea Lankford lived in some of the biggest, most impressive national parks in the world, working as a ranger - a job she loved. She chaperoned baby sea turles 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.

In this candid and wryly humorous account of her and others' extraordinary careers, Lankford unveils a world in which park rangers struggle to maintain their idealism in the face of death, disillusionment, and the loss of a comrade killed while holding that thin line between protecting the park from the people, the people from the park, and the people from each other. Ranger Confidential is the inside story of the nation's crown jewels - Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Denali. In these iconic landscapes, where nature and humanity constantly collide, scenery can be as cruel as it is redemptive.
