Book Review – Bear Bloopers: True Stories from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

3.5 stars. A fast and fun read featuring tales of rangers on the job, ranging in length from a paragraph to a couple of pages. Readers of previous “Bear in the Back Seat” volumes will enjoy these capsule tales, featuring many of the same rangers from other books. First-time readers of the series may find it too anecdotal; this is definitely filler material (but filler material that I enjoyed). One of the best parts of the book are the “stupid questions” passages, in which park visitors ask rangers such thought-provoking, insightful questions as “when do you turn the waterfalls off?” and “at what elevation do the deer become elk?”

A perfect hour-long read for the outdoor lover, nothing more and nothing less.
