KIRKUS REVIEW

Bill, newly graduated from High School, takes a summer job of ""smoke jumping"", a fascinating, thrilling new phase of the Forest Service. Parachute landings right at the source of the fire, with all the dangers of planes, jumping into the unknown, rocky territory, fires, falling timber, vast unknown wilderness and wild animals all combine into one first rate boys' adventure story, with a career angle. Credible, varied characters and honest adventure.
