Back to Greenville


Join author Ron Cerruti as he recounts his adventures and misadventures as a seasonal Forest Service worker for the Greenville Ranger District during the 1970s. Told with frank, irreverent good humor, Ron chronicles both the people and animals who called the wild regions and rural towns of Plumas County and the surrounding northern Sierra Nevada home. This light-hearted and comical journey is a beautifully written reminder of the fragility and value of America's natural resources and shows Ron's love of the forest, its animals, and the people who pass through it. Come along with Ron as he encounters loggers, firefighters, miners, thieves, a couple of cattle rustlers, as well as Elmer the deer, Black Bart the rattlesnake, and Satan the evil and mean-spirited duck! Although the Greenville District no longer exists, the memories of times spent in the Plumas National Forest live on in this book. Paperbound: 190 pages: 6 x 9"
