About the Book:
“SALMON, Idaho – As a young teenager, author Hadley B. Roberts made a game plan that included an education that would lead him to work with either fish or game animals. The plan would also complement his avocations, hunting and fishing. In his new memoir, “Preserve the Best and Conserve the Rest” (published by Xlibris), he narrates the road he has taken to follow and realize those dreams.
Roberts has long decided that his utopia would be working for and with the animals he loved best. When he graduated from the University of Maine and hung out of his shingle, it read “Wildlife Conservation.” The word “conservation” meant only one thing to him: that is the wise use of renewable natural resources, with special regards for wildlife and fish. That jump started his half-century career in wildlife and fish habitat conservation and preservation.
This memoir not only offers a glimpse at the road towards one man’s dream’s realization. It allows readers to witness the ups and downs on a life dedicated to wildlife protection and conservation. With the author’s uncommon experiences in his career and dream job, he is able to stress the importance of loving his profession and pouring his heart to highlight the need for people to “Preserve the Best and Conserve the Rest.”
About the Author:
“Hadley B. Roberts was born and raised in New York City. He left at the age of 17 for a four-year hitch in the U.S. Navy and was followed by six years at the University of Maine and University of Idaho, where he obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in wildlife management. His major employer for the next 32 years was the U.S. Forest Service and the succeeding 25 years were spent working as a private consultant. This job allowed him to travel to 65 countries and six continents, mostly on birding trips.”
