An interesting pleasantly written somewhat sentimental memoir of a game warden s wife looking back on their early years living in the Maine woodsI hafd kept a copy of this book in my own game warden husband s patrol truck as an emergency book to read in case I ever got stuck with nothing to do Several years ago we had to run a uick errand but he was on call so we took his patrol truck And of course he got a report of a fatal ATV accident I ended up sitting in the truck for six hours while he investigated the incident This was pre smartphone days for me and I hadn t thought to bring a book So I learned from that incident to keep a book in the truck just in case This one felt like an appropriate choiceI hadn t had to use my emergency book uite yet but this has also been on my to read shelf so long that it s now at the bottom of the list Time to read it and then put it back in the truck if I feel like it s worth rereading again someday I really enjoyed this account of life in 1930 s Maine It was fascinating to see how times have changes both for a warden s role and just life in general I ended up reading bits out loud to my husband such as the parts when the game warden had to arrest someone and then he and the arrestee would have to snowshoe 70 miles to the nearest court to see a judge And then snowshoe back home I can t even imagine how he managed to convince someone to do that Were people just really compliant or did he basically march them the whole way at gunpoint The other part I had to read out loud was when Annette said that she wanted to get a groundhog to raise since groundhogs make better pets than cats Then a gruff old woodsman who lived nearby heard of this and brought her a groundhog in a burlap sack When Annette exclaimed that she meant that she wanted a baby groundhog to raise up not a FULL GROWN one the man had turned and left Awww she d unintentionally hurt his feelings for not wanting the groundhog that he d brought her Men trying to do something nice for women and just not getting it uite right has apparently been a problem forever Annette s love for the outdoors is very apparent in this book Those uninterested in descriptions of seasons trees animals canoeing hunting fishing etc may find this book a bit tedious I thought her enthusiasm for all of the above was charming and her descriptions lovely To me there is something almost comical about the first flakes of snow that come usually in late September It s the way the big clumsy flakes float down dipping and rising as if they were afraid to hit the ground But they are not timid very long In another month the snow has gained experience and the flakes small and solid dive down in close slanting lines sure of where they are going and the job they have to do in the winter months aheadNow this book was published in 1954 and the time period described is about 1930 to then Obviously some sensibilities have changes since then so some readers may be disturbed by some of the harsher elements of this book There were a few animal deaths that feel callous by today s standards or by the standards of those not accustomed to hunting so be warned In those days and in the deep woods with small children a bobcat near the home could be a real danger and there was a scene where the warden kills one near their home in a manner that was savage than he probably intended Later he also shoots two dogs I assume this meant domestic dogs not coyotes who were chasing deer which was standard practice in those days and is still the law today A bear cub s death is also mentioned somewhat grimly and regretfully At the end of the day game wardens have to deal with wild animals and that often leads to some ends that the sensitive public might not want to hear about So fair warning Overall I found this to be a generally pleasant read and I ll happily reread it should I find myself stuck in the truck again If anything it s a good reminder that You think being bored in a truck is bad How about snowshoeing into the woods in the middle of winter to live in a tiny cabin with your new game warden husband and no running water Cleo she her husband and their children lived in a GURPS Basic Set small cabin on the Aus der Geschichte einer infantilen Neurose shore of Umsaskis Lake Jackson an avid Scratch sportswoman and natur.
