It all began close to 40 years ago when Larry Weill was stationed as a Wilderness Park Ranger in the Adirondacks West Canada Lakes Wilderness Area. His best-selling trilogy, starting with Excuse Me, Sir... Your Socks Are On Fire, has entertained a generation of Adirondack hikers and campers with tales of the crazy life of the backcountry trail ranger. Now, Weill has published a new collection of stories from his last ten years of trekking around those very same woods. Thanks Anyway, Sir... But I'll Sleep In The Tree documents his recent walks and talks in the West Canada Lakes Wilderness, adding a final chapter to his life in the woods.
Larry Weill's career life has been as diverse and interesting as the characters in his books. He has studied biology and entomology, and is an avid naturalist. He has worked as a Wilderness Park Ranger, a fire-tower observer, a financial planner, a technical writer, and a career Navy Reservist. Larry is a lifelong devotee to the mountains, and he loves the Adirondacks. He lives in Rochester, New York, with his family, and they frequently hike and climb in the Adirondacks.
