Backroads Law

True Stories of South Dakota Game Wardens

by Jona Ohm

The South Dakota Conservation Officers Association is proud to present this collection of stories about the inception of the organization, and officers past and present. Sometimes funny, sometimes harrowing, their tales are always heartfelt. These stories reflect loyalty, camaraderie and passion for their work to protect wildlife and natural resources.

Backroads Law is a collection of 36 stories about the adventures of 20 South Dakota Conservation Officers, active and retired. Each story takes place in South Dakota - from Wind Cave National Park to the lakes that border Minnesota in the far north east corner. 

Stories vary from one page to 10 pages long, making this book perfect for light reading and sharing with family and friends.
