“Bear in the Backseat II” – Travel Animal Doctor

Bear in the Backseat II: Adventures of a Wildlife Ranger is a series of short stories about wildlife cases in the Smokies. – Travel Animal Doctor

Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of a park ranger would be like? When going on a hike at a national park have you been curious as to why it is so important not to feed the bears, the elk or the other wildlife that is there?

Riveting tales of bear visitations to camp sites and elk playing with hay bales help the reader understand why it is so important to keep a hands off approach with the Great Smoky Mountain wildlife. By feeding an animal or giving it positive reinforcement to rely on humans, this can cause dangerous occurrences for the next encounters.

  • If wild animals become too friendly with visitors it results in the animal being put down to avoid visitor harm.
  • The information in this book is vital knowledge for a backpacker or family going to visit the park even if for only the day.
  • It is an easy read for adults and the chapters are short enough that it is possible to read a story a night to a child.



  • If you buy the book as an ebook, it is enjoyable, but you do miss out on a potential bonus that you will find at the end of the book.
  • While I do not want to give the surprise away, if you want to be fully satisfied with your purchase, give it the extra day for a book to be delivered to you via Amazon.
  • Make sure you read to the very end, and you will find it was worth it to have the paperback copy.
  • This book made me want to read the first book, and kept my attention until the end.

With the amount of useful information in this book it was hard to put it down. Every page described the unique relationships between predators and prey. Many tales were quite comical while others were more serious.  All in all, each story was meaningful and eye-opening to anyone interested in exploring national parks.

If you are interested in learning about the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the efforts of the park rangers, Bear in the Backseat II: Adventures of a Wildlife Ranger is the book for you. –Travel Animal Doctor
