An unforgettable journey through the daily lives of the brave men and women who have made saving lives their profession. Dennis Smith, author ofReport from Engine Co. 82, traveled across the country talking to dozens of America's firefighters to put together this powerful collection of their own descriptions of their most dramatic and intense experiences on the job. Their stories, compiled here, are timeless testimonies to the human capacity for heroism and nobility. Focusing on the most courageous firefighters, from those who have been decorated for heroism to those who have been seriously injured,Firefighterspresents the extraordinarily rich and rugged voices of men and women who fight urban building fires, who battle sweeping forest fires, who perform emergency rescues, and who face extreme danger and risk as part of their everyday lives. Sometimes brave, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet or filled with anger, these voices combine to makeFirefightersboth a riveting adventure drama and a moving chronicle of American heroism at its finest.

The only problem with the book was that you did not know who was telling the story. Sure, they had pictures and names of the firefighters, but there was no information on who the story was about.
