“Who as a child (or a restless adult) hasn’t dreamed of working in one of our spectacular national parks? If you’ve ever longed for natural beauty, wildness, or a more expansive life, here’s your chance to see what happens to those who follow that dream. As one of the writers puts it, ‘Wild places are infused with magic, and they attract the most crazy-wonderful people.” —Nancy Lord, former Alaska Writer Laureate and author of “Fishcamp, Green Alaska,” and “Early Warming”
