Description
FOREWORD INDIES Book of the Year Awards -- 2017 SILVER Winner for Photography A celebration of and tribute to our nation's courageous firefighters and first responders. Paul Mobley has taken his camera on the road again to photograph America's bravest citizens. In this collection of intimate and powerful photographic portraits, we get a glimpse of what it means to answer the call and run toward danger. Stunning portraits of these brave men and women--chief fire officers, company and wildland crew leaders, instructors, and line-firefighters--are accompanied by firsthand accounts of those who put it all on the line, as well as stories of those firefighters who have made the greatest sacrifice of all. American Firefighter contains the real-life stories of firefighters, from the most rural volunteers to the most sophisticated and technologically advanced metropolitan departments, and it also profiles the children and grandchildren of firefighters who have been lost in the line of duty as they honor and pursue a family legacy. This book is an excellent gift for this nation's 1.4 million firefighters and their families, for those just coming to the profession, or for any American who is intrigued to learn more about these everyday heroes.
