Additional Information

This is Wasserman's third book about his encounters with animal poachers in the wilds of Pennsylvania. Join him as he patrols four hundred square miles of rural mountain terrain in search of some of the most unpredictable--and interesting--characters you'll ever meet. Wasserman relates the dangers of his job with pulse-pounding clarity. He is a wonderful storyteller. His crisp use of dialog makes his characters come alive in every page. Wildlife Guardian contains seven of his best tales to date.

In Footsteps in the Dark a goat is killed in a remote forest by some unknown beast. Wasserman knows that a mountain lion has been reported in the area. At first, he disbelieves the claim. But as he stands between the creature and its meal, it begins to stalk him. Alone in the dark of night, he listens to the steady cadence of its breathing and wonders if he'll make it home alive.

In Unintended Consequences the author narrates an encounter with a poacher that keeps coming back to him like a bad dream. It's a story about a man and his dog that you'll remember long after you put the book down.

In A Valentine's Surprise a poacher prepares to surprise his wife with a turkey dinner on Valentine's Day. His plan backfires when the game warden shows up as an uninvited guest. But there are other surprises in the story as well. It's one you don't want to miss.

Shadows in the Moonlight is a fast-paced story about a night of chasing poachers that includes some hilarious antics between Wasserman and a faithful deputy who always manages to stay one step ahead of him.

In A Reckoning in the Snow we take the ride of our lives as the author attempts to take his patrol car over a treacherous, frozen mountain to assist a deputy with bear poachers.

In Head Games emotions run wild as Wasserman encounters a family of downtrodden poachers that he's reluctant to prosecute. It's one of his best tales ever.

Fallout is a story about hardened poachers who will stop at nothing to shoot a deer. They've been at it for years because everyone is afraid to act. It takes a strong woman and her teenage daughter to finally bring the men to justice.

Excerpts from Wildlife Guardian:
I wondered if it was sizing me up at this very moment, its powerful body adjusting, muscles taut and ready. The notion made my heart hammer so loud I could hear it. And I was certain that whatever was out there could too...

She took a long pull on her cigarette. Thought about the revolver hidden in her bedroom. A single woman. Alone. Frightened. Three armed men outside. It would be self-defense...

The suspect had turned around and was boring toward us at a deadly pace. I switched on my revolving red light, thinking it might stop him. But the lunatic truck shot by my vehicle, taking my side mirror with it...

You are dealing with people that have guns in the woods. And, in some cases, these people have become impaired due to alcohol or drugs. And some of them are fishing or hunting illegally. So there is a good chance that something bad will happen. Thank God the author has survived all of this and has written about his experiences. I'm about three forths through this book but, being an outdoorsman, I am thoroughly enjoying it. Sort of reminds me of the TV show Cops but with a different twist. Mr. Wasserman has other books out about his experiences as well. I plan to read them.
Wildlife Gaurdian is another fine chapter in the legacy of Bill Wasserman and his experiences as a Wildlife Conservation Officer.This is a must read for all lovers of nature and wildlife. It's just not possible to get enough of these great experiences. Good VS. Evil always makes for a good read, especially when good is triumphing more often than not.In times like we're living it makes the reader feel good that something positive occurs when in so many other situations it doesn't seem to be the case.This book provides encouragement we all need. I always look forward to Bill's next series of adventures and after reading Wildlife Gaurdian, I'm sure you will too. Scott Canfield
I love reading stories about game wardens, correctly titled as "Wildlife Conservation Officers" in Pennsylvania. There are so few of them, and the chances of meeting one in real life is slim. They are spread thin, often covering hundreds of square miles of remote territory, working alone, with the nearest help perhaps hours away. This book was dedicated to Wildlife Conservation Officer David L. Grove, who was murdered on November 11, 2010 while Grove was attempting to arrest a convicted felon for poaching a deer.
