bytnarFormer park ranger Bruce W. Bytnar discusses and signs copies of his memoir, A Park Ranger’s Life Thirty-two Years Protecting Our National Parks, at New Dominion Bookshop on Saturday, January 16 at 11am.

From the author's blog: "I started my National Park Service career in 1975 as a seasonal employee at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. I later worked at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, and three districts on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Virginia. During this time I worked as an interpreter of historic, cultural and natural resources, a federal law enforcement officer, wildland and structural firefighter, resource manager, emergency medical technician, search and rescue worker, supervisor, manager, mentor, and instructor. It was a rich and productive career that produced an inordinate number of experiences and stories."
