Well, that brings us back to the same story. I suppose Walker has noobjection to your hearing all about it. I don’t know why we should makeany secret about it, though it is certainly a pretty bad business. He made no further allusion to it during the excellent dinner which hadbeen prepared in my honour. It appeared that no sooner had the littlewhite topsail of the Gamecock shown round Cape Lopez than these kindfellows had begun to prepare their famous pepper-pot-which is thepungent stew peculiar to the West Coast-and to boil their yams and sweetpotatoes

Every year, thousands of young men and women think they would like a job as a wildland firefighter. And every year, tens of thousands of them do it -- they fight the summer battles of wildfire on the forests and grasslands of the West. Some die. Some have the times of their lives. And many forge lifelong friendships and collect the memories of a lifetime. This is the first book to vividly and honestly portray what it's really like -- from the spine-chilling fear of a wildfire entrapment to the simple joys of a warm meal and a chilled soda. From the steep mountainsides of Idaho to the sweltering humidity of Florida, Ben Walters tells the stories of the fires he fought and the friends he made during his years as a wildland firefighter. FIRE CREW: Stories from the Fireline is the real thing, a must-read for anyone who's done it or wanted to.

I was researching becoming a wildland firefighter last year when I came across this book. I loved it, start to finish. I even read it a second time before taking off for my rookie season. Ben tells a good version of what it can be like on an engine crew. He includes a lot of his personal thoughts along the way too, which gave me the honest look into a firefighter's mind I was looking for to see if I could connect with guys like him. This is the kind of book I wanted / needed to read before getting into fire. Most of the books I came across were about smokejumpers or nonfiction about events in the past, this really tied everything together for me.

I read a lot of firefighting books and I am not really into wild fire fighting books but this one is an exception. Right up there with the work of Murray Taylor, this not only tells the story but tells the story of his co-workers. It is really a story of the author's growing up. So if you want a book about wild-land firefighting this is a good choice. If you want a coming of age book, this is also a good choice.

I liked the stories and accounts actually pertaining to the fires, and some of the other events were OK, but the book would have been just as good without the stories about the excessive drinking and partying .

This is great read. I've read a lot of "fire books" and some seem to drag on forever with dry, boring, endless narrative. Ben's effort combines realism, excitement, information, and comedy in a manner that every reader would enjoy. It's a real page turner, that at times had me laughing out loud. I was sad to see the remaining pages run out like sand in an hourglass. Like a hot fudge sundae, it's good to the last spoonful, and will leave you wanting more. Thank you Ben! Can't wait for your next effort!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story of a young man's journey from rookie to seasoned wildland firefighter. It challenged my straightlaced, rule following sense of propriety at times, but all in all I really enjoyed reading it and learning more about the life of a wildland firefighter.

As a wildland firefighter with over twenty years of experience I found this book to be awesome. I certainly identified with many of the author's fears, frustrations and triumphs. A must read for the ground pounder, fire virgins and knuckle draggers out there as well as for anyone interested in what motivates firefighters to actually want to hike miles in to a blazing forest to do battle with the devil.

Perfect read ! Fire service is not a job, whether full time paid or partime paid, us in the volunteer fire service just love it. Its a life and is in the blood ! The worlds biggest family .
Former wild-land firefighter here. I loved the book. Excellent story-telling and writing.
