About this Book:

John Ford Sr. returns to the outdoors of Maine with This Cider Still Tastes Funny! Further Adventures of a Game Warden in Maine, his follow-up to the highly popular and critically acclaimed Suddenly, The Cider Didn't Taste So Good. Ford is a retired Maine game warden, sheriff and gifted storyteller who carved out a reputation as a man of the law, but one who wasn't a by-the-book enforcer. He often came up with a good quip as he slipped the handcuffs on a violator, and he wasn't above accepting a lesson learned as sufficient penalty for breaking the law. He was also more than willing to laugh at himself. As Kate Braestrup, author of The New York Times bestseller Here if you Need Me, said, "John Ford's stories from his long career as a Maine game warden are offered with humility and good humor, and demonstrate an abiding affection for the land, creatures, and quirky characters of Maine. Ford is an appealing character, a great storyteller, and he's FUNNY."

Reviews

"An entertaining book that will leave readers chuckling, speechless or both... The secret to Ford's success is simple: He knows of what he writes. And he kept good notes in a diary during his career as a warden, realizing that someday, someone might want to hear his stories. That's all great news for readers, who will gobble up his collection of stories."
— John Holyoke, Bangor Daily News

"John Ford's stories from his long career as a Maine game warden are offered with humility and good humor, and demonstrate an abiding affection for the land, creatures, and quirky characters of Maine. Ford is an appealing character, a great storyteller, and he's FUNNY."
— Kate Braestrup, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Here if You Need Me

"From the serious – tracking a murderer – to the sublime – raising a baby owl – retired Maine Game Warden John Ford shares thirty-five of his best stories that will entertain all indoor and outdoor adventurers."
— George Smith, outdoor writer and former executive director of the Sportsman's Alliance of Maine

"This collection of 41 stories continues to offer fascinating insight into the hard work, dangers and challengers facing game wardens. These are all first-hand accounts, told with self-deprecating humor and unvarnished honesty, even when Ford tells of his own goofs and embarassing moments. This is informative and fun reading, and we can only hope John Ford hasn't run out of stories."
