Overview

"I knew that for my own morality and conscious, I had to see a weapon and feel the threat before I could pull the trigger. I yelled at Jim again to bring his hand out slowly. On my own gun, I could see the hammer move toward me as I put more pressure on the trigger. I was mentally prepared for Jims' next move."

Michael Meyer considers himself one of the luckiest men on Earth. He didn't work in a corporate building all his life, instead, he went to work everyday in the wilds of America's most beautiful national parks, including Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, the West, and in Alaska. Here, Ranger Stories presents 23 of the best, most exciting moments from a lifetime as a top-level law enforcement ranger for the Park Service and Bureau of Land Management. It is also the story of a humble hero who at the height of his career, made a difficult choice for the happiness of his family.

Meyer led an envious lifestyle of adventure involving boats, .38 caliber revolvers, helicopters, high-speed chases, and sheer courage in man-to-man standoffs. His is a memoir that reads like a modern-day cowboy Western where life is valued very little by some of the hardened characters Meyer crossed paths with. By honing his tactics as a smart and patient law enforcer, you'll marvel at how rangers protect tourists when they're not even looking and long after vacation season has ended.
