Overview

Rosanne S. McHenry worked as a California State Park Ranger at Folsom Lake and the Auburn State Recreation Area in the late 1980s, when the life of a patrol ranger could get extremely rough and tumble. From drug busts and drunken brawls to teen romance on display; from an attack goose to a pot-bellied pig on the loose, she regales her readers with madcap adventures.

Within the pages of this book is the madness and gladness of the profession. The stories of people and Mother Nature give the reader a fascinating peek at the world of a park ranger. Funny, intriguing, and a really good read! McHenry tells it like it is, with humor and wit, about the pains and joys of the job. The presentation of real life experiences in this book glow with the revelations and frustrations of park rangers. Protecting the people from our parks and the parks from our people is a curious challenge unique to park rangers.

Told with the greatest humor, wit and compassion, Tales From a Rogue Ranger is a truly award-winning read for anyone who loves parks and being in the outdoors.

About the Author

Rosanne S. McHenry has worked as both a U.S. National Park Ranger and a California State Park Ranger. Her ranger experiences include the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mount Rainier National Park, the Auburn State Recreation Area, Folsom Lake, Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, and Death Valley National Park, among others.

In her newest book, 'Tales From a Rogue Ranger', McHenry shares her experiences about the rough and tumble life of a patrol ranger near Auburn, California. A park ranger's job is nothing like you might imagine. Set against the stunning backdrop of California's American River Canyon, this is an engaging and wildly unusual read about the untamed life of a woman ranger.

Already receiving positive praise, this new book has been praised by numerous authors, and by California State Parks and U.S. National Park Service professionals as an outstanding example of what it takes to work in this field.

Her first book: 'Trip Tales: From Family Camping to Life as a Ranger', chronicling her early years as a National Park Ranger, has won several major literary awards.

McHenry currently lives and works in Auburn, California, with her husband. The beautiful American River Canyon is adjacent to their home in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
