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.
