Park Rangers and Game Wardens

Arthur Digbee
The list author says: "This is a list of books I've enjoyed about park rangers and game wardens - - both real and fictional. These folks have interesting outdoor careers, interacting with wildlife and with a wide range of people, making a good story very interesting. The fiction is mostly murder mysteries, either involving park ranger Anna Pigeon (by Nevada Barr) or Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett (by C. J. Box)."

A Sword for Mother Nature: The Further Adventures of a Fish and Game Warden
"With this book, Tiny Grosz's memoirs of a game warden cease to be chronological.  He still has good stories, but they don't follow the same logical progression as in other books."
