This collection of 26 short stories is considered by many to be the best of its kind. Readers come away with a vivid and colorful picture of what the lives and adventures of California's game wardens are really like. All of these true stories take place in California, which has more natural diversity in wildlife habitat and species than any other state and is second only to Alaska in its vast areas of wilderness.
"Lieutenant Terry Hodges is to wildlife protectors what Joseph Wambaugh is to big-city cops. His book, TOUGH CUSTOMERS, is evocative story-telling . . ." - Paul Dean, Los Angeles Times
