This Has Got to Be a Fantastic Read---4.9 stars, from 62 Ratings at Amazon!

It's _Patrolling the Heart of the West: True Tales of a Nevada State Trooper_, by Steve Raabe.

Get it _free_ right now, at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DNSC22X.

As the title says, it has a (stunning) 4.9-star average rating, at Amazon, from a total of 62 total ratings. The website also has a plethora of accolades, and such like, for the book.

I was immediately drawn to the book, because Nevada is one of my favorite states (in case you're trying to guess why, no, it has nothing to do with casinos, card games, slot machines, or cheap buffets!) There is a nice photo, on the cover of the book, of a typical, beautiful stretch of an isolated two-lane road in Nevada).

The title of the book almost "says it all;" however, here is the description, from the book's webpage:
"For decades, Trooper Steve Raabe patrolled some of the most desolate and dangerous highways in America. Alone in the remote Nevada desert, miles from any backup, Raabe was forced to contend with murderers, thieves, perverts, dope peddlers, and the occasional runaway train.

While often tragic and terrifying, Raabe's true tales also abound with his signature wit and playful good cheer. Policing can be a deadly serious business, but for Raabe it also entailed buying a prisoner an ice cream cone on a hot summer day, or laughing along with some good old boys before booking them into jail, as you'll discover in Patrolling the Heart of the West.

In our contentious and politicized era, when police officers are too often portrayed as either infallible superheroes or oppressive henchmen, Raabe's charming collection reminds us that cops are mostly just ordinary men and women who've chosen an extraordinary career."

The price for the Kindle ebook is usually _$4.99_ but, again. it's _free_ right now.

I "can't wait" to read it.

(I feel that I should say a word about the publisher, Latah Books . A person's initial opinion might be that it, self-described as "one of the premier publishers in the American West," is some kind of indie or self-pub outfit. If so, considering the fact that I haven't read it yet, it would be a violation of the rules of this thread to post it on this thread. After some research, it appears to me that it is a traditional publisher, albeit a very small one. I base my belief that it is traditional one on several facts, but especially that it is located in _downtown_ Spokane, Washington, and that Google shows a (nice) office building as the company's location there. If anyone has a good reason to believe that Latah Books is not a traditional publisher, please let me know and I will move the post to a proper thread. Thank you.)
