"Wildfire West is the finest pictorial I have ever seen, capturing elements of the drama of the world of wildland firefighting. It does a great honor to the fire program. Perhaps most importantly, it highlights nuances of the camaraderie of the bros in moments of action, dirt, dogged tiredness and mirth. I don't have much smokejumper memorabilia on display in my home. But having this book on hand makes it possible to visually explain to the average joe how to approach fire and what goes on in a firefight. This book is really unsurpassed. Loved the layout. What a cast of characters!"
