John Ford Sr., a native Mainer, comes from a long line of Maine Game Wardens. He was sworn into the service shortly after finishing up a four-year stint in the U.S. Air Force. He spent all of his twenty-year warden career in Waldo County in central Maine. Upon his retirement in 1990, he was elected as county sheriff and re-elected in 1994. He has written a local newspaper column and is a regular contributor to the Northwoods Sporting Journal. He also is a painter, known for his wildlife artwork. He lives with his wife in Brooks, Maine. His first book, Suddenly, The Cider Didn’t Taste So Good, a highly-acclaimed look at his career, was a bestseller in Maine.

John Ford Sr. returns to the outdoors of Maine with “This Cider Still Tastes Funny! Further Adventures of a Game Warden in Maine,” his follow-up to the highly popular and critically acclaimed “Suddenly, the Cider Didn’t Taste So Good.” Ford is a retired Maine game warden, sheriff and gifted storyteller who carved out a reputation as a man of the law, but one who wasn’t a by-the-book enforcer. He often came up with a good quip as he slipped the handcuffs on a violator, and he wasn't above accepting a lesson learned as sufficient penalty for breaking the law. He was also more than willing to laugh at himself. As Kate Braestrup, author of the New York Times bestseller Here if you Need Me, said, “John Ford’s stories from his long career as a Maine game warden are offered with humility and good humor, and demonstrate an abiding affection for the land, creatures, and quirky characters of Maine. Ford is an appealing character, a great storyteller, and he’s FUNNY."

I have both books and read his story's in the Northern Woods. Hope he has more to come.
The author believes if you are going to laugh at others mistakes, then you must be able to laugh at your own. This diary of actual Game Warden events and encounters while working the woods and waters of our state, gives a great overview of what life is like from a law enforcement officers eyes, as he served the very public who paid his wages. Guaranteed laughs, and yet a fair share of the dangerous aspect of the men and women involved in such a rewarding career.
This book deserves 10 stars, This book is made up of short stories that humorous and tragic stories of a game wardens life. The stories are written with great enthusiasm . I really do hope there is more to come I tend to want to read them over again. This author is not only a great author but also a great person.
