Author Bob Lee and his second book, "Bad Guys, Bullets, and Boat Chases: True Stories of Florida Game Wardens"

Bob H. Lee spent more than three decades as a Florida game warden, and in his second book, he collects stories from across Florida of fellow officers tracking poachers, chasing illegal fishing operations, and mounting a rescue after a jet crashes in the Everglades.

Tuesday at 1 p.m. on Gulf Coast Live, Lee joins the program to share his own experiences as a "backcountry lawman" and the dozens of interviews he compiled to tell the stories in his new book, "Bad Guys, Bullets, and Boat Chases: True Stories of Florida game Wardens."
