In WILDLIFE'S QUIET WAR, Terry Grosz continues to chronicle his remarkable career defending America's voiceless wild creatures. Since his first days as a California game warden in 1966 to the end of his career as a special agent for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1998, Terry Grosz has been fighting to put those in the business of extinction out of business. In this, his tenth memoir, he recounts his adventures as a United States Game Management Agent, where he matched wits against cold-hearted killers: commercial market hunters, run of the mill poachers, sportsmen run amuck, outlaw Native Americans, politicians and law enforcement officers straying over the line of legality, wealthy land owners, and just plain dedicated killers of wildlife. Some set out to poach wildlife; others are recreational shooters who become possessed by their primitive blood lust. The effect is always the same, however-the destruction of a natural resource that should belong to those Americans who are yet to come. Bad weather is thrown into the mix, and a ton of side-slapping funnies that can only can happen to those who offend Mother Nature. Terry Grosz made every effort to stop these heartless criminals, and Wildlife's Quiet War book has all the excitement, drama and sometimes lively humor of his adventures. Terry Grosz was a conservation officer for California and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for more than 30 years. Wildlife Wars, his first book, won the National Outdoor Book Award and was the basis of a docudrama featured on Animal Planet. Eight memoirs followed. His Mountain Men Novels include "Crossed Arrows," "Curse of the Spanish Gold," "The Saga of Harlan Waugh," and "The Adventures of the Brothers Dent."
