Having joined a firecrew in Northern Arizona as a young man, Desmond relates his experiences with intimate knowledge and native ease, adroitly balancing emotion with analysis and action with insight. On the Fireline shows that these firefighters aren't the adrenaline junkies or romantic heroes as they're so often portrayed. An immersion into a dangerous world, On the Fireline is also a sophisticated analysis of a high-risk profession—and a captivating read.

"Gripping... a masterful account of how young men are able to face down wildfire, and why they volunteer for such an enterprise in the first place".—David Grazian, Sociological Forum "Along with the risks and sorrow, Desmond also presents the humor and comaraderie of ordinary men performing extraordinary tasks. . . .

A good complement to Norman Maclean's Young Men and Fire. Recommended".—Library Journal
