Former Royalton town supervisor, former Roy-Hart wrestling coach and retired DEC officer Dick Lang just released a book entitled "Behind The Badge: My Life as a Game Warden".

The 368-page tome is available at for $12.76 before shipping and taxes. The description on the website reads:

Whoever thought conservation work could be so exciting! After 34 years as a New York State Environmental Conservation Officer, Dick Lang has more stories than could fit into any one volume. Join him as he watches a fellow officer give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a deer, runs high-speed chases after dark, moves a cougar in the patrol car, finds a skeleton in the trunk of a car, and many more fun stories. Told in Dick’s comfortable, easy-to-read style and embellished with photos and illustrations, this is a book that will appeal to all ages and is a tribute to the dedication of our Environmental Conservation Officers, regardless of which state they patrol.

I've ordered my copy and look forward to reading of Dick's adventures. The Amazon link is:
