On Patrol: True Adventures of an Alaska Game Warden (Caribou Classics) (Paperback)
Take to the air with veteran bush pilot and game warden Ray Tremblay in these lively adventure stories of Alaska's early game-law enforcement. During a career spanning nearly thirty years, Tremblay earned the respect of his fellow pilots and game cops, as well as biologists, trappers, hunters, and fishermen who appreciated his sincere concern for the protection and wise use of the fish and wildlife in the Territory, then State of Alaska. Gifted with good humor, common sense, and uncommon storytelling ability, Tremblay offers two dozen remarkable first-person accounts that are worthy of laugh-aloud and read-aloud status--to the guy in the next room.
About the Author
After retiring to Anchorage, Ray Tremblay stayed active in the summer with commercial fishing for halibut and sportfishing for salmon. In winters, he was busy traveling and writing. He and his wife, Elsie, were married for fifty years and had six children and eleven grandchildren. Sadly, Ray passed away in August 2004, one month before the release of ON PATROL.
…an inviting mixture of history and memoir, with many an engaging anecdote about Alaska before and immediately after statehood. Tremblay loves Bush Alaska and loved his work, especially flying, for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He brings to life an Alaska that now is only a memory.
--Michael Carey, Anchorage Daily News
Ray can spin a yarn with the best of them...and make you believe it because it's all true. ---Jay Hammond, Governor of Alaska 1974 - 1982.
