Part of Guardian Witch series by Ally Shields. Ari crouched beside the body. Not as much blood as there should be, raising the question of whether he’d been dead before he went over the edge.

Fire, Blood and Forty Below, set in Fairbanks Alaska in the 1980's, chronicles the first year of a new volunteer firefighter/EMT.

Written in journal entry style, the pace of this book is fast. Most authors seem to think that filling a book with detailed descriptions of clothing, food, and room decorations makes them more "literary" so they tend to do it - ad nauseum. That is not the case here, there are no extraneous words, every word is necessary and valuable.

Another thing that seems quite difficult for most authors to pull off, but that Alan does with great ease, is humor. I've read books that were supposedly humorous and had a hard time finding anything to even be amused by - throughout this book I was not only amused, but chuckling and laughing out loud!

Since the majority of our nation's firefighters are members of volunteer fire departments, this book would give anyone considering the field an idea of what to expect, especially in a rural setting.

This book is written from the author's notes taken as he trained for first responder and fire fighter status in Alaska. It is exciting and as educational as reading an advanced first aid book. The story line is particularly gripping as you know it is true. The men and women that he encountered are revealed as interesting with varied personalities, although few are named. He aptly nick-names the most colorful participants in his adventure, allowing them privacy as we get to experience their effect on the author. I think it is a must read, so I bought copies for all my adult sons.

With all the current issues we face (security concerns and wildfires to name just two), "Fire, Blood, and Forty Below" is extremely timely. As a journal of his entry into the field of firefighting and emergency medicine, it is remarkably entertaining and gripping. Alan Ziff takes a humble approach to the profession, and doesn't hesitate to make us laugh by highlighting his mistakes. However, what amazed me most was to come away from the book having learned useful information about the fields of emergency medical services and firefighting.

This would be a useful read for anyone considering a career in either of these fields. And, if you're not considering such a career, it is a fascinating look at the lives and risks of those who protect us from disaster.

The book itself is very well written. Lots of interesting parts. However, I had the chance to meet the writer in person, he's a smug, condescending little prick.
