Bear in the Back Seat I: Adventures of a Wildlife Ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by Carolyn JourdanWall Street Journal and Audible Best Seller! This is the first volume in a series of true stories from ď[a]n extraordinary landscape populated with befuddled bears, hormonally-crazed elk, homicidal wild boars, hopelessly timid wolves, and nine million tourists, some of whom are clueless.
In Kim DeLozierís world, when sedated wild black bears wake up unexpectedly in the back seat of a helicopter in mid-flight, or in his car as heís driving down the highway, or in his office while heís talking on the phone, itís just another day in the park.
Youíll love seeing Kim and a fellow ranger tested as they bravely take on the task of relocating 77 live skunks by sedating them with darts from homemade blowguns, especially when the pickup truck load of stinkers wakes up while still in transit.
An hilarious, heartwarming, and heartbreaking memoir by the chief wildlife ranger in the #1 most popular family vacation destination in the USA, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For over thirty years, Kim DeLozier acted as a referee in the wild, trying to protect millions of park visitors from one of the densest populations of wild black bears in America -- and the bears from tourists who get too close.
Written with 3-Time Wall Street Journal bestselling author Carolyn Jourdan who has several highly-regarded #1 Amazon bestsellers about the Smoky Mountains and Appalachia. Her other books are Heart in the Right Place, Medicine Men, and Out on a Limb.

Last updated on June 9th, 14 Comments. Text-to-speech is one of the features that sets Kindle books apart from the likes of Kobo and Nook. But not all Kindle devices and apps support text-to-speech. Kindle ebook readers used to support TTS. There are some workarounds, however.
At present there are:. I had a phone call this week from an adult with dyslexia wanting to use text-to-speech with the Kindle app to help him read books on an Android tablet. You would expect this to be relatively straightforward, but it took over two hours of investigation and I'm still not sure that I found the 'best' solution. I should make it clear that I quickly decided to call the enquirer back, rather than leave him hanging on for a couple of hours! From past experience of Kindle apps I wasn't expecting the 'standard' Android solutions to work, but I decided to give them a try.
Amazon's newly updated apps for Android and iOS support instant switching between text and narration. Here's how to make that switch. Kindle owners have long enjoyed the option of toggling between text and audio versions of their books, a feature made possible by Amazon's Whispersync for Voice technology. The newly updated apps let you switch between reading and listening with the tap of an icon. That's pretty cool.
