John Ford, a native Mainer, was sworn in as a Maine Game Warden shortly after finishing up a four-year stint in the US Air Force. He spent his entire twenty-year warden career in Waldo County in central Maine. Upon his retirement in 1990, he was elected as county sheriff and reelected in 1994. He has written a local newspaper column since 2002 and is a regular contributor to the Northwoods Sporting Journal. He lives with his wife in Brooks, Maine.Review:
"John Ford's stories from his long career as a Maine game warden are offered with humility and good humor, and demonstrate an abiding affection for the land, creatures, and quirky characters of Maine. Ford is an appealing character, a great storyteller, and he's FUNNY." --Kate Braestrup, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Here if You Need Me
"From the serious tracking a murderer to the sublime raising a baby owl retired Maine Game Warden John Ford shares thirty-five of his best stories that will entertain all indoor and outdoor adventurers." --George Smith, outdoor writer and former executive director of the Sportsman's Alliance of Maine
"An entertaining book that will leave readers chuckling, speechless or both... The secret to Ford's success is simple: He knows of what he writes. And he kept good notes in a diary during his career as a warden, realizing that someday, someone might want to hear his stories. That's all great news for readers, who will gobble up his collection of stories." --John Holyoke, Bangor Daily News
