520    This definitive account of the Yarnell Hill Fire is a 
       heartbreaking tale of courage, difficult decisions, and 
       ultimate sacrifice. On June 28, 2013, a single bolt of 
       lightning sparked an inferno that devoured more than eight
       thousand acres in northern Arizona. Twenty elite 
       firefighters--the Granite Mountain Hotshots--walked 
       together into the blaze, tools in their hands and fire 
       shelters on their hips. Only one of them walked out. 
       Journalist-firefighter Dickman brings to the story a 
       professional firefighter's understanding of how wildfires 
       ignite, how they spread, and how they are fought. He 
       understands hotshots and their culture: the pain and glory
       of a rough and vital job, the brotherly bonds born of 
       dangerous work. Drawing on dozens of interviews with 
       officials, families of the fallen, and the lone survivor, 
       he describes in vivid detail what it's like to stand 
       inside a raging fire--and shows how the increased 
       population and decreased water supply of the American West
       guarantee that many more young men will step into harm's 
       way in the coming years.--From publisher description.
