  Fire Line: The Summer Battles of the West
by Michael Thoele

Reviewer: Michael C. Ellsworth from Chattaroy, WA:
"Probably one of the best wildland fire books I have ever read. In my 25+ years of firefighting this one captures the scenes of a wildland fire the best. The pictures are great and the narration and stories truly catch you up in the whole fire scene. Buy it for the pictures or the stories--but get a copy, You will enjoy it for years to come."
