During a career that spanned three decades, northern New Hampshire native Charles Barry lived on the "wild" side, first as a longtime conservation officer for the Granite State's Fish and Game Department, and then later as the state agency's executive director. In Behind Badge 32, the author recounts many of his most memorable moments while working as a game warden in New Hampshire's remote North Country and along the state's scenic Connecticut River valley and beautiful White Mountains region. These tales cover everything from nighttime stakeouts of deer poachers and dangerous mountain rescues, to wildlife encounters and tramping the high peaks with former New Hampshire governor Meldrim Thomson.
