Overview

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.

They just might involve someone you know!

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.
