Riassunto: "[A] swashbuckling account. … To someone who interfaces infrequently with wildlife law enforcement, two things fairly leap from the pages of Grosz’s books. One is the unbridled fervor he and fellow officers exude for enforcing the nations’s game laws. The other is the lengths to which some miscreants in the outdoor fraternity will go to break them. … After you read his books, you’ll never look at a wildlife officer the same way again." —Charlie Meyers, The Denver Post

L'autore: Terry Grosz earned his bachelor’s degree in 1964 and his master’s in wildlife management in 1966 from Humboldt State College in California. He was a California State Fish and Game Warden, based first in Eurika and thn Colusa, from 1966 to 1970. He then joined the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and served in California as a U.S. Game Management Agent and Special Agent until 1974. After that, he was promoted to Senior Resident Agent and placed in charge of North and South Dakota for two years, followed by three years as Senior Special Agent in Washington, D.C., with the Endangered Species Program, Division of Law Enforcement. While in Washington, he also served as a foreign liaison officer. In 1979 he became Assistant Special Agent in Charge in Minneapolis, and then was promoted to Special Agent in Charge, and transferred to Denver in 1981, where he remained until retirement in June 1998 (although his title changed to Assistant Regional Director for Law Enforcement).

He has earned many awards and honors during his career, including, from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Meritorious Service Award in 1996, and Top Ten Awards in 1987 as one of the top ten employees (in an agency of some 9,000). The Fish & Wildlife Foundation presented him with the Guy Bradley Award in 1989, and in 1995 he received the Conservation Achievement Award for Law Enforcement from the National Wildlife Federation. His first book, "Wildlife Wars," was published in 1999 and won the National Outdoor Book Award for nature and the environment. His next book, "For Love of Wildness," was published a year later.
