Seasonal: A Life Outside

Ed Engle, Author Pruett Publishing Company $18.95 (173p) ISBN 978-0-87108-780-5
After graduating from the University of Colorado, Engle, a member of the Woodstock generation, tried his hand at various minimum-wage jobs--landscaping, quarrying--then found work as a seasonal employee with the U.S. Forest Service. This is his engaging account of his 12 years as a ``timber beast.'' Engle has manned visitor centers, maintained campgrounds, inventoried timber, supervised tree planting, fought forest fires. The work clearly suits him. He introduces readers to colorful characters hired by the Senior Community Service Employment Program and describes a mountain race--11 miles up, seven miles down--that will have the reader gasping. Engle writes that he finds time to fish, look at birds and other wildlife, enjoy scenery. Nature lovers will appreciate his attitude. (Jan.)
