About this book

Life is filled with memories and ill remembered events, and to reawaken, relive, and record them for others is a daunting task that few embark upon. Echoes from the Mountains is an engaging, honest, and humorous portrayal of the challenges, opportunities, and complex issues involved in managing and protecting Colorado wildlife in a career of more than three decades in the Southern Rockies and balancing the often competing interests of people who find joy in Colorado's wildlife.

Profoundly influenced by his father who nourished his interest in the outdoors, hunting and fishing, Glen followed his dream of living a life as Wildlife Officer, bringing passion and enthusiasm for seeking common sense solutions to the problems of wildlife management which is almost every case involves the management of the state's citizens and visitors. He diffused dicey and tense encounters with firmness, good will, and humor. Every bend in the trail was an adventure. Deeply appreciative of what he learned from others, he was never too busy or too self centered to quit learning from those who were more experienced. Always willing to work with the young and less experienced, he himself became a master teacher and team builder. He rejoiced in doing new things, mastering new challenges, and doing old tasks differently. His experiences allowed his qualities as a teacher, learner, and leader to etch an indelible mark upon the region as witnessed by his leadership in his numerous capacities.

In his first book Crusaders for Wildlife, Glen paid tribute to the forest rangers, game wardens, biologists, and citizens who restored our wildlife heritage. Echoes from the Mountains is the personal side of being a Wildlife Officer in some of the most isolated, rugged and beautiful mountains in Colorado. For understanding the daily life, joys, pleasures, and dangers of being a Wildlife Officer for the State of Colorado, no better account can be found.
