Издательство: HarperCollins Publishers

Real-life firefighters speak with candor about what it's like to live and work in the line of duty. Gathered here are personal stories from men and women on everything from the daily grind and the effects of their work on family to their encounters with the world's most famous fires. They talk about their injuries, about volunteer firefighting, earthquakes, forest fires, urban medical emergencies and arson. No exaggerations, no false heroism, just true day-to-day accounts of courageousness and fear as they grapple with the daily traumas of their profession. Assembled here are the most poignant of stories: the human face behind the uniform. Hair raising and awe-inspiring but never false or indulgent, The Fire Inside is an accurate portrayal of the highs and lows, the real-life grit of the world's most dangerous profession.
