    “Students need an inspirational book of short stories about people, agencies, and organizations that made lasting positive differences in our fields of natural resource management.  As an example, Glen Cole, who initiated my thesis research study project, gave the citizens of the country a 500-head herd of wild bison when he allowed the 35 penned-up animals to roam free on Park, Refuge, and Forest lands in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  He also was instrumental in giving us a recovering grizzly bear population when he convinced the National Park Service to close their garbage dumps and force all the great bears to make an honest living in the back country of the Yellowstone Ecosystem.  Glen and the Park Service took unlimited criticism for their daring action, but 20-20 hindsight proved him to be a visionary.  If readers of this book and others would submit their natural resources success stories, a book could be assimilated to serve as an inspiration for current and aspiring conservation vocationists.” (Book p. 146)

     Send your conservation vocationist stories (signed or anonymous) to me via letter or preferably e-mail and I will consider adding them to this book during a subsequent printing.  If enough people send stories about themselves or others they know of, I would consider publishing them in another book or providing all the material to some other interested person to publish.  All stories that deal with natural resource successes or failures and the general/specific trials and tribulations faced by conservationist vocationists would be appropriate and needed.  Let your natural resource protection experiences teach other conservation vocationists to be more effective. Authorship would be retained by you or you can remain anonymous.  No story of yours would be printed/published until approved by you.

     Constructive criticism about how to improve my book and make its message more effective is welcome from fellow conservation vocationists.  Likewise, your help in identifying people you know in academia, groups, and agencies who might be interested in reading/using the book would be appreciated.  I will send a free copy to professors, etc. who express an interest in possibly using the book in their classes and/or for distribution.  Marketing guidance states, “Book promotion isn’t about convincing people to buy your book.  It’s about knowing where to find the people who are waiting for it.”
