§As reported by publisher
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This book is about firemen doing their work. It is not a book exclusively for firemen, men and women, at least not directly. It is a book about them, their work and how they do it, their tradition and dedication. It is for all of us who didn't know what they do. It is for all the fascinated people to whom the author has shown these photos who never realized how compelling the work really is. We can honor the memories of those fallen in the line of duty with ceremonies and dedications, not only at the World Trade Center, but all over the country, on average 116 a year. But it isn't enough to just feel badly for them. What they would like but hold out little hope for is to be understood and not taken for granted; the very thing all of us need. In that spirit Alan Jacobs set out to find out as much as he could, never realizing at the time the complexity of the job, how captivating it would become, the tight-knit community he was allowed to enter, the tragedy, and the humor, the honesty and openness, the help he would receive and the friendships. What a bunch they are.
