  • The sense of pending doom in this book is palpable as Mark Matthews pieces together details and events leading up to the Mann Gulch disaster Though the book was well researched, Matthews did take a fair amount of liberty in constructing what various people might have thought, felt, or seen at key points leading up to and during the Mann Gulch fire I think he took the greatest liberty when dealing with Julie Reba, the long grieving wife of one of the deceased smoke jumpers Though the liberties ma [...]


  • This book tells the tragic story of 13 smoke jumpers fighting a fire in Montana over 60 years ago Matthews does a great job of not only telling the story of the the day in August when these men died, but also telling the story of their lives through extensive interviews with their friends and loved ones Over the course of the book, you get to know the personalities and individuals of the men through short chapters that focus on their day to day life leading up to their deaths.For me personally, [...]


  • I m not sure if this Is the one I read in High School English Class But till this day I was trying to find the name of the boo we red All I knew was that it had to do with red, fire, and gulch I totally had forgotten about this book until one day, I just up and remembered it When I can t remember something I won t stop until I find out what it exactly is But Anyways, I personally don t like documentaries The one about Mann Gulch stuck with me through out adulthood The message it brought was like [...]


  • This book recounts the Mann Gulch wildfire that unexpectedly flared and ultimately killed 14 smoke jumpers I found the book to be well researched and written However, I was a little put off by the authors inclusion of what some people were thinking, when I doubt there is any actual record of this Although these moments were a wonderful way of bringing a personal feeling into the story, I felt that they were out of place in a non fiction portrayal of events.


  • Another take on the Mann Gulch disaster of 1949, the first time smokejumpers were killed in the line of duty This book is better than McLean s Young Men and Fire, as Matthews takes a semi storytelling tone to his book Both are highly recommended I borrowed this from the library, but I ll be acquiring a copy for my personal collection.


  • The book moves slow at the beginning when it s introducing the reader to the main characters, but that s what makes the book so emotional later It s well written, exciting, and sad.
