Looking for a good "summer read?"

Among other things it touches on the NPS Centennial, the Big Cypress Swamp. It chronicles the "day in a life" of a ranger that turns into anything but that.
The Legend of Campfire Charlie:
Celebrating the 100th Birthday of America's Nat'l Parks
By Robert V. Sobczak and Rudi Heinrich
Do you have a grave fear of speaking in public? How about being squeezed to death by a giant Burmese Python? Does being watched by a panther all day rattle your nerves? Join Rusty, a well-meaning but ― how shall we say ― "often distracted" park ranger, who is scheduled to give an evening campfire talk in a swamp preserve on a topic he doesn’t much like. Not to worry (or maybe worry a lot) as the unwitting ranger meets a mysterious stranger who catapults him on a breathtaking journey to confront and maybe finally answer the deepest and most confounding question of his life. That’s assuming he can ever get done (or to) his campfire talk ...
The book is available on Kindle but can be read on any device.
