Overview

Retired Maine Game Warden John Ford has seen it all. He's been shot at by desperate prison escapees, been outwitted by wily trappers, and rescued scores of animals. As a tenacious warden, he always was willing to spend the time needed to nab violators of the state's fish and game laws. At the same time, he wasn't a heartless, go-by-the-book enforcer; he usually had a good quip ready when he slipped the handcuffs on a violator, and he wasn't above accepting a lesson learned as sufficient penalty for breaking the law. Ford is also a gifted storyteller, and he writes of his adventures in Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good, a collection of true tales, some serious, some humorous, and all heartwarming.

    This book is about John Ford Sr.'s adventures being a game warde

    This book is about John Ford Sr.'s adventures being a game warden in the state of Maine. Most of the stories were very comical there were a few serious situations in the book also . My favorite Story was one that his lieutenant was in the car with him and another warden called them out to a location and the lieutenant played a joke on the other warden. There's a lot of laughing out loud. I loved this book its put together perfectly. If I could I'd give this 10 stars!
