Young Men and Fire

"If you have lived a life that has thrown you in contact many times with nature, you have already discovered that sometimes you can deal with nature only by allowing it to push back what until now you and others thought were its edges." 

Revered American author Norman Maclean delivers a harrowing look into what occurred on the fateful evening of August 5th, 1949.   The United States Forest Service lost 13 firefighters, 12 of which were members of the elite and newly created USFS Smokejumpers.  A worthy read about the west, the young and a devastating natural drama at the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness - Montana.
