An outstanding book, told in the firemen's own words, that reminds one just how much we owe these men and women who choose a career in firefighting. The focus is primarily on city fire fighters, but some of writings are from wildfire fighters, too. It gives a solid glimpse into their lives on all sorts of levels, such as how their families cope, the camaraderie that comes from living shoulder-to-shoulder, the practical jokes in the firehouse, and so much more. Written in 96, there's nothing about 9/11, but there are some pieces that deal with the firefighters who responded to the OK. City bombing and how it affected them. Well worth reading.

This is a fascinating account by real firefighters of their daily lives on duty. This talking book is for anyone doubting the courage and willingness of firefighters to put their own lives on the line to save others. I loved it and will probably listen to it again before I put it back up for adoption.
