Non-Fiction

An entirely engrossing debut from a writer who has drawn comparisons to Edward Abbey, John McPhee, and Wallace Stegner, Nature Noir is a nature book unlike any other. Jordan Fisher Smith's startling account of fourteen years as a park ranger thoroughly dispels our idealized visions of life in the great outdoors. Instead of scout troops and placid birdwatchers, Smith's beata stretch of land that has been officially condemned to be flooded brings him into contact with drug users tweaked out to the point of violence, obsessed miners, and other dangerous creatures. In unflinchingly honest prose, he reveals the unexpectedly dark underbelly of patrolling and protecting public lands.
