For nearly 30 years, Willie Parker has patrolled nesting grounds, nabbed poachers, and on occasion resorted to disguise, protecting the wildlife of Tennessee, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Maryland. He's not arbitrary; everyone in the territory knows his goose is cooked if this federal agent flushes him out. In his own salty idiom, Willie recalls his more colorful catches--surprising early hunters out to get him, hoodwinking a ring of alligator skinners, drinking it up on an undercover operation so the waterfowl black marketeers wouldn't suspect a set-up. Without exception, the violators are trundled off to the local magistrate and, with a boost from recent legislation, treated to some embarrassment and stiffer fines. Pat, his Labrador retriever, often comes along, and other agents--including the first woman--come across as equally committed. An all-seasons license for modest entertainment and a quick flight over the field.
