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!!!

Interesting stories of a park ranger's experiences and the work involved in keeping visitors safe and protecting the parks. Light easy read, yet educational. Mr. DeLozier was a dedicated and hard working park ranger who's job required him to work very long hours in some very undesirable and sometimes very dangerous conditions.
I find the statement about the number of people killed from black bear attacks in the Smokey Mt. park or US in general, misleading. It gives the impression that the chance of being killed by a black bear is slim to none. While very few have died, it isn't because the bears didn't try. If it weren't for others being there to beat the bear off the victim or the victim able to do so, the death toll would be much, much greater.
I am grateful for the work of our park rangers and impressed with their bravery and sorry they continually have to repair the damage of ignorant or disrespectful park visitors.
For more info. on black bear safety and behaviors, read "Backcountry Bear Basics" by Dave Smith and Ben Kilham's two books, "Out On a Limb" and "Among the Bears".

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

Why?

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.

Buy it, read it, love it. I did!

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.

If you love the adventure of the otutdoors, you will love this book detailing the adventures of a wildlife ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. A fun and entertaining read that is great for all ages. My kids beg me to read this book to them every night.

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.

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!

It's only natural that an extremely diverse place like the Smoky Mountains would inspire so many funny, heart warming and touching stories like the ones told in "Bear in the Back Seat", 1 and 2!

Kim Delozier does a great job of taking his readers into the back country of the Smokies and exploring the wildlife with him.

As with Bear in the Backseat I, I couldn't put it down. I am amazed at the intelligence and adaptability of the wildlife as told through humor and sometimes heartache of this devoted Wildlife Ranger. Kim's caring voice has collaborated with Carolyn's fine pen to make this an unforgettable read.
