Overview

Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good: Adventures of a Game Warden in Maine by John Ford Sr.

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 and successful warden, he was always willing to spend the time needed to nab violators of the state's fish and game laws. At the same time, though, he wasn't a cold, 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 very gifted storyteller and he writes of his adventures in Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good, a collection of true tales, both humorous and serious, from the trenches of law enforcement, and also includes heartwarming accounts of his rescue of hurt or abandoned animals.

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!
