Book Description

Second volume of true stories from a national bestselling series set in “[a]n extraordinary landscape populated with befuddled bears, hormonally-crazed elk, homicidal wild boars, hopelessly timid wolves, and nine million tourists, some of whom are clueless."

The first volume of DeLozier's memoir was a #9 Wall Street Journal Bestseller in December of 2013.

In Kim DeLozier’s world, when sedated wild black bears wake unexpectedly in the back seat of a helicopter in mid-flight, or his car as he’s driving down the highway, or in his office while he’s talking on the phone, it’s just another day in the park.

You’ll love seeing Kim and a fellow ranger tested as they bravely take on the task of dealing with enraged wild boars, elk, and other wildlife.

A hilarious, heartwarming, and heartbreaking memoir by the chief wildlife ranger in the #1 most popular family vacation destination in the USA, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For over thirty years, Kim DeLozier acted as a referee in the wild, trying to protect millions of park visitors a year from one of the densest populations of wild black bears in America --and the bears from tourists who tried to get too close.

Written with Wall Street Journal bestselling author Carolyn Jourdan who has several highly-regarded #1 Amazon bestsellers about the Smoky Mountains and Appalachia. Her other books are "Heart in the Right Place", "Medicine Men", and "Out on a Limb".

I was so excited to see this release, as a huge fan of the first Bear in the Back Seat. Enjoy the critters and help keep them safe. You might recognize some of your own mistakes, but this book will help you stay safe. It’s well written. I want more more more!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer joy for nature lovers. April 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is also a first volume, "Bear In The Back Seat I," which is equally engrossing. I happened to read the two books out of order, but that didn't ruin my enjoyment of the stories. There is nothing better than reading first-hand accounts of working with nature. The ranger who coauthored these books devoted his life to caring for the bears and many other creatures that inhabit the forests of the southern USA. These books should be required reading for everyone who plans to visit a state or national park. The main lesson thread that runs through each tale is: in the parks and reserves, you will be a guest in the home of some amazing animals, so treat them and their home with respect. Don't feed the animals, don't litter, and don't behave like idiots by approaching them. They are wild, not tame. Admire them from afar, then leave them in peace.

Great book for anyone that loves the Smokies. There is not as much humor in this book compared to the first one but it is worth the read anyway!! I miss the mountains and this book makes them feel closer!!

I have to admit I am a BIG fan of all of Carolyn Jourdan's work.

Like all her other books, in this book there are lots of humorous anecdotes. Interesting stories. I really enjoyed this book and laughed so hard my husband asked me what I was laughing at. I read it to him and he laughed too. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

Brilliantly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important and Touching book. March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A Great Book, a MUST read must read for all national park visitors
Anyone who plans to visit the Smokies or any national park with wildlife should read this book before they go. Then they will know how to behave around wildlife. The life you save could be your own, or your child’s, or even the animal’s. Very important, and touching, book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful June 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed book one and worried that the best stories got used up in the first book. I worried in vain! I liked book 2 even better than book 1. As a regular hiker and runner of the Smokies I love these books. I am familiar with the places mentioned and have seen many bears, elk and even some boars. Reading these books is like taking a vacation in the Smokies. The authors do an excellent job and the stories are delightful with a few with sad endings. If you like the outdoors and animal stories you will love these books. Five stars all the way! I look forward to book 3!
