Summary "Smith, a sometime firefighter and lookout at Arizona's Tonto National Forest and other sites, has nearly five decades of scanning horizons and battling blazes under his belt. He revisits his experiences in a meandering text with the feel of a scrapbook that includes journal entries, news clippings, emails from friends, and photos of his comrades flailing at lurid flames, along with more polished personal remiiniscences and essay fragments. When pieced together the ingredients of this somewhat disorganized book give a vivid picture of the life of a firefighter, from the equipment ... to the mac-and-cheese meals, barracks camaraderie and safety protocols" -- Cover p. [4]
