These are the true tales of the game wardens who race across the surface of the vast Everglades in powerful airboats, stalk escaped murderers in the remote wilderness, exchange gunfire with ruthless game outlaws, track alligator poachers in the pitch-black marsh…
True stories of the lawmen who patrol the Florida Everglades for drug smugglers, alligator poachers, and escaped convicts. Meet the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting the wildlife and natural resources in the only Everglades on earth.
A few highlights: *A father fearlessly engages in a desparate tug-of-war to free his child from the jaws of a giant alligator. *Gasoline fed flames leap into the night sky after a jilted lover attempts to burn to death his girlfriend and her new companion in their Everglades hunt camp. *Hours after his wife is savagely beaten and raped, her game warden husband uses his wilderness tracking skills to pursue and ultimately confront her assailant face-to-face. *His hands wrapped around the deadly jaws of a seven-foot gator, a game warden falls out of his boat and plunges to the bottom of a lake with the predator still in his grasp.
"This is one excellent read; don't pass up getting a copy of this one." —Bob Mullen, International Game Warden
