This book was an excellent surprise and a true page-turner. Clearly informed by the author who has lived the life of a park warden, Dyed In The Green opens an insiders view into the world of national park wardens in Canada that is not well known outside its community. Reading this book is an education into the role and the difficult challenges and lack of resources confronting park wardens. I would bet that most Canadians know very little about the law enforcement role that Park Wardens play or just how precarious is the protection the parks provide. However, reading this book is not only eye-opening, I found it far more gripping and engaging than most bestselling thrillers because of its depiction of the very real life dangers unarmed wardens can face when confronting heavily armed poachers.
