“Generally, firemen who fight wildland fires are called Firefighters and firefighters who fight city fires are called Firemen. I’m not sure what the difference is. I’ve done both and both are dangerous and the flames are just as hot and can burn you up in either environment.”
Author John Meyers describes the danger and tragedy he faced at times and shares the joys of developing a comradeship with his fellow crewmen by taking you inside his experiences (including 26 glorious, full color photographs) in the late 1960s and through the 1970s. Humorous and sobering all at the same time.
This book also contains many of his thoughts about why we're having these new megafires. It's a combination of factors that many people don't consider. This book will help you understand just how complicated it is.
