A compelling memoir that captures a remarkable career; Terrifying, but grimly funny, this is a portrait of a real-life daredevil; For anyone with an appetite for vicarious adventure; Fighting fires since 1965, veteran smokejumper Murray Taylor finally retired from his legendary career last summer - the worst fire season in more than fifty years. After three decades of parachuting out of planes and battling blazes in the vast, rugged wilderness that is Alaska and the West. Taylor recounts in Jumping Fire, with passion and honesty, stories of man versus nature at its most furious and unforgiving.
