After her ikusin (grandmother) dies, Kai Hunter, a part Navajo, part Stoney Nakoda sixteen-year-old, runs away to Banff, Alberta, to avoid being placed in a foster home. Kai lies her way into a new identity, a job and a safe place to live. She makes new friends and volunteers with a rapid-attack crew for the forestry service. She even meets a great guy named Rory, who’s into motorcycles, just like her—and who seems to be into her too. But Kai is scared of being found out, and she isn’t sure that she can trust all of her new friends…or that she likes the person she’s pretending to be. Meanwhile, she’s got to pay rent, figure out whether Rory is boyfriend material and assist the rap-attack crew as it faces a string of suspicious forest fires. In the thrilling conclusion to this romantic adventure, Kai’s choices become matters of life and death.

Nothing stirs the blood like the flashing lights and blaring siren of a fire truck racing to fight a blaze. The action photography in this book captures that excitement in all of its forms. In powerful, on-the-scene pictures and text, author/photographer Shapiro explores the special techniques and equipment brought to bear on fires in cities and suburbs, rural outposts and wilderness, in homes and industrial structures. He also takes a close look at hair-raising rescues and other “non-firefighting” tasks that firefighters find themselves facing. From bold photography and detailed descriptions of fire fighting to close-up looks at the fire house and its full array of equipment--trucks, ladders, pumpers, and tankers--this book conveys both the technical nitty-gritty and the fiery action of meeting and containing one of nature’s most brutal forces.
Follow the flashing lights and wailing sirens, grab a hand-line or a pike pole, and get ready to discover the up-close and on-the-scene action of Fighting Fire Trucks! Larry Shapiro offers this colorful look at the many different types of fire trucks in use today, including pumpers, aerials and tankers, and the personnel who man them. Filled with details of specialized rescue squads, foam and forest fire units, and a full chapter on airport fire fighting. See them in the heat of the action!
Fighting Fire in the Sierra National Forest by Marcia Penner Freedman Pdf
To live in the foothills on the periphery of the Sierra National Forest is to live with the certainty of summer wildfires. Each year, from April forward, Californians watch the sky and sniff the air for telltale signs of smoke. While fire remains a constant threat, the strategy for combating it has evolved with the understanding of its beneficial role in the forest environment. Marcia Penner Freedman traces the history of firefighting and fire management from the forest's early years through the policy shifts that began in the 1960s and the measures used today.
