Award-winning author Terry Grosz, whose career in conservation is matched by his skill as a storyteller, revisits his rookie years as a fish and game warden for the State of California, where his on-the-job training got him into some awful scrapes (but the bad guys he chased almost always got into worse ones). As a law enforcement agent, he learned to sniff out trouble, defuse tense situations, and stay alive; and as a human being, he learned to temper justice with mercy and to treat everyone fairly. Grosz?s stories are action-packed and driven by his passion to preserve our country?s wildlife, whether he was working under the wing of a mentor, fighting out from underfoot of the bureaucrats, or stepping on the toes of corrupt and hypocritical politicians..
PRAISE FOR TERRY GROSZ'S EARLIER BOOKS:
?Terry Grosz?s adventures in 32 years of enforcing wildlife law astonish even his fellow wardens, and he tells them in a way that keeps you turning the pages till there aren?t any more.?
?Ted Williams, Editor-at-Large, Audubon Magazine, Conservation Editor, Fly Rod & Reel
?As our urbanized society continues to lose its connection to the land, along with our precious fish and wildlife resources, we need more agents like Terry whose inspirational tales show how he dedicated and risked his life to protect that which he loved. Be prepared to simultaneously feel joy and anger as he details his hair-raising efforts, and those of others, to prevent the destruction of our natural heritage.?
?Len Ugarenko, North American Waterfowl Management Plan Coordinator, International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies
?After reading Wildlife Wars, I wondered if Terry Grosz could keep up the pace with a new set of memories and fascinating law enforcement experiences. Not to worry. For Love of Wildness takes you into a world almost never visited by even those of us who love the outdoors. Seldom does one who possesses a depth of knowledge in one field of endeavor rise to be able to chronicle that knowledge and experience in an entertaining and compelling manner. Grosz has risen above all but a very few professional authors.?
?Larry Jay Martin, author of The Last Stand
