Smoke jumping is one of the most interesting jobs in the world let's talk about it. The main idea of the story is that it is a one of a kind job and how they do there job and why it is so important.
My favorite fact about the book is that they actually use equipment that you would use to cut down a tree or to fix up your yard like axes,shovels,pick axe,and a chain saw and they hold those in there gear and packs and jump out of a plane!
I did not know that every spring you are tested for your ability sometimes you will have to run 3 miles in under 45 minutes with all of you gear on that can way up to one hundred fifty pounds.
I think the book was ok because it was telling you about something and then it would jump into another thing with out ending what it was talking about.
My books text features are close nit, roll call, flame retardant, Pulaski ,drip torch, and back fires.
