Description

A bolt of lightning creates a spark that instantly turns a tree into a ball of flames. The fire quickly spreads in the remote forest. Overhead, specially trained firefighters leap out of a plane into the forest. They carefully tug on their parachute straps to avoid the blaze and the rising smoke. After landing, the smoke jumpers immediately get to work battling the giant fire. In Smoke Jumpers, dramatic, true stories will keep readers turning the pages as they learn firsthand how these tough, brave firefighters use their strength, quick thinking, and expert skills to battle deadly blazes. In addition, readers will go behind the scenes to learn how smoke jumpers train for their job so that they are ready to spring into action at a moments notice.
