about

What drives some people to stand in the path of a wall of flame? Who are these brave, foolhardy, visionary firefighters? This intimate look at the elite groups that fight wildfires explores the trials, tragedies, and triumphs of these courageous few as they battle wilderness blazes from Alaska to Maine. From the grueling training of a smokejumper class in Montana, through harrowing fights with some up-close-and-personal wildfires, to a group of inspired conservationists who use fire as a tool for preservation, Karen Magnuson Beil takes readers where only a few have ventured - into the heart of one of nature's most destructive and unpredictable forces: fire.
Karen Magnuson Beil is an editor, journalist, photographer, teacher, mother, and author of two other books for young readers. In researching Fire in Their Eyes, she worked on burn crews for two seasons, documented a Montana smokejumper class, and interviewed dozens of people to create a close-up portrait of ordinary heroes.
