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

National Service, Elvis and Me! is a serious but light-hearted look at the 13 years of peacetime National Service which led to the call-up of around 2.3 million men in their late teenage years. Most... More > men served for 2 years between 1949 and 1961. Every alternate Thursday for 13 years 6,000 men were called-up and allocated to either the Army, the RAF or the Royal Navy. Elvis Presley was on manoeuvres in Germany with the US Forces when he entered the story, and Sir Alan Ayckbourn, Harry Corbett, Brian Clough, Kenny Lynch, Bill Wyman and other personalities also feature. Serious in some parts, and hilariously funny in others, there are tales of training in the UK; square bashing and ’bulling',war games the antics many of the testosterone charged men got up to; humour; and the camaraderie which arose from men being thrown into a massive pond and having to sink or swim. With 425 pages and many photographs this book is a fascinating read for anyone.< Less
