For nearly three decades, Tr. Mark Nickerson had a front-row seat to the greatest show on earth.
During his 28-year career, the Maine State Trooper was often a star character in the show, starting with his patrol in the Moosehead Lake region and finishing in the Waldo/Kennebec area of central Maine. He handled both harrowing and humorous encounters, from pursuing a murder suspect to trying to foil an outhouse bandit on Halloween.
Protecting a president, escorting home the body of a fallen soldier, and notifying family members that a loved one had died were all part of a day's work.
In his first book, Nickerson shares more than 30 memorable episodes of the greatest show, including a hair-raising motorcycle chase, a prison up-rising, and riotous capers with Warden John Ford.
Readers are invited to sit back and enjoy the tales involving rowdy suspects, unfriendly dogs and intoxicated pedestrians.

This book is a great read for anyone who has ever shared any interest in what goe son in their community while they are sleeping - or away! The stories are well written and actual events of a Trooper as he carried out his duties serving the people of Maine. They are written in a humorous and clever way, while yet showing the downside of those in the community who fail to go by the rules. I suggest this book to anyone who wants to have a quick smile but yet is interested in the reality of life on their own backyards. A definite 5 star.
