The Bear Dogs of Katahdin: And Other Recollections of a Baxter State Park Ranger

Steve Tetreault

The mother moose was standing by her three-week old calf. She gave me a cold hard stare and then laid her ears back. I could actually see the hair rise up on the back of her neck just before she put her head down and charged. Barely into my second month as a Baxter State Park ranger and a big animal was angry and running straight at me. She could kill me or cause serious injury with one flail of her hooves. This was surreal. I was a ranger, for Pete's sake. How was I going to explain this in my weekly report? The Bear Dogs of Katahdin is Steve Tetreault´s true account of his time spent as a ranger in Maine´s Baxter State Park, a wilderness area of over 204,000 acres. In this collection of anecdotal stories, Steve describes his life as a new ranger in a strange place, meeting new people--and learning about his wild neighbors. If you are a lover of the outdoors in general, or perhaps Maine and Baxter State Park in particular, you will appreciate Steve´s depiction of a park ranger´s life from the point of view of a young and idealistic person.
