A Yukon Game Warden's Stories: Unusual Adventures of a Conservation Officer  
VIEW DETAILS
Front Cover


  In true Yukon-style storytelling, George Balmer captures the “mostly true and often humourous adventures” of his younger years as a government official in the Yukon in the ’70s and ’80s. In over thirty funny and shocking tales, George’s problems are as creative and unusual as the solutions.

During a solo stint in a fire tower, George accidentally starts a fire of his own. As a Conservation Officer, he finds he is the referee in a punch-up between a black bear and a woman who both claim the same salmon, when he captures a grizzly bear it turns the tables at the first opportunity. When George is tasked with removing a shack in the bush, he discovers he has set fire to the previous owner’s secret stash of dynamite.

In these tales and many more, George recalls a slew of true characters and unpredictable encounters. This diversity, the lack of routine, and the frequently risky aspects of his experience captures the wild heart of the Yukon.
