This book took place in a desert park and followed the life of a blm ranger and what he does. I found it interesting in his adventure to find a illegal hunter and some crazy hoodlums out for revenge. The characters were very colorful and interesting. The descriptions in the book kept me reading. This has a mystery and some hunt them out chases.
it was a confusing book. I did like at the end how the mystery came together, buy I don't recommend this book to anybody because of the lack of explanation.

David Sundstrand was a longshoreman, a soldier, a railroad brakeman, and served in the United States Merchant Marine before going to college on the G.I. Bill to study English literature. He liked being a student almost as much as being a ne'er-do-well and might have stayed in college permanently were it not for the constraints of having to make a living. After many years of teaching English in hig...more
