New book discusses the origins of the Blue Goose Alliance
DREAM HUNTER - A National Wildlife Refuge Manager's Memoir is a series of recollections that roam from the author Ed Crozier's days as a youth through his nearly fifty years of working coast to coast with the National Wildlife Refuge System. The recollections are about his personal outdoor adventures and his experiences as a professional manager of several national wildlife refuges. Included are stories about growing up in a small town on the Minnesota prairie, working as Forest Service fire-tower lookout, a Park Service fire fighter, a wilderness guide and as a wildlife manager in the Fish & Wildlife Service. Other stories are about his escapades in the army, grassroots environmental activism, owning a hunting camp, living with bird hunting dogs, saving a valley, wildlife management, game law enforcement and the politics of managing a national wildlife refuge. Included are chapters about the early history of the National Wildlife Refuge Association, the early days of the refuge Friends movement and the formation of the Blue Goose Alliance.
AUTHOR Ed Crozier was raised on the prairies of western Minnesota. After obtaining a BS degree in wildlife management, he began a lifetime career in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service serving in a number of positions in the National Wildlife Refuge System.
