Paid in Sunsets: A Park Ranger's Story By David A. Dutton
Hardcover: $42.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Paid in Sunsets: A Park Ranger’s Story is a humorous memoir of David A. Dutton's life as a Federal Park Ranger. Park Rangers are called upon to do many dangerous things, like rappel down cliff... More > faces to rescue stranded climbers, or cut fire lines in advance of raging forest infernos. Dutton didn’t do those things. He spent thirty-one years sharing the natural world with others. This memoir retells the best of those experiences—bawdy encounters along the muddy Rio Grande, ghosts in a remote Southwest canyon, swimming with Great White sharks, tweezing pernicious Kentucky ticks off his body, carrying diarrhea out of the longest cave in the world, and getting pissed on by an indignant raccoon in a Mississippi backwater, to name a few. The memoir is about birth, life, and sometimes, death. It’s about a journey—from being a greenhorn Park Ranger in New Mexico to becoming an ordained Senior Park Ranger in Mississippi, twenty years later.< Less

There are pitfalls aplenty in this book. These dangers include your taking a literal interpretation of the title. Finally, you say, someone has given me permission to take the rest of my life off.... More > You don’t need my permission to do this. How about living as a forest monk? There are many benefits: The tax breaks are fantastic, you pay no taxes; there are the sounds of silence; sometimes you go many weeks without anyone annoying you; and, most of the time you sit with your eyes closed, and no-one complains. The downsides include: Chores, but as these are light when you become venerable; you need to beg for food at the nearest town; only eating once a day; oh, I saved the best bit for last, no sex. I am not in a hurry to be a monk. Besides, it would be a blot on my resume. Not that, that is a concern since I retired. As my career did not set the world on fire, I took the easy way out and retired early. If you think that this option pandered to my lack of ambition, then you guessed right.< Less

More > able to elude capture by the German Army. The rest of his crew spent the war in German POW camps.
