Bob Gray, who was in the Forest Service from 1942 to 1976, has written down some 200 true accounts, many quite humorous and most informative of events that happened. The book gives a personal look at problems the ranger deals with from forest fires to administration, amusing incidents, unusual characters, and a few tragedies. Covers Shasta-Trinity National Forest and forest fires throughout California, Oregon, and Washington. He will slip in something comical most anywhere; he's like that in person too. 'Rattlesnakes were plentiful. Of course, one or two of them are plenty.' or 'We had got lost after mopping up a fire out in the Lava Beds. It was so dark we couldn't find the truck, finally giving up about eleven o'clock, we bedded down cold and hungry. Daylight came, and there right beside us, no more than fifty feet away, was our truck!'
