Terrific news: THE FIRE LINE: The Story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and One of the Deadliest Days in American Firefighting by Fernanda Santos is a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2016 selection!
From the B&N Discover blog: “For most Americans, wildfires exist mainly as breathless news footage, either of planes dumping chemicals or of ominous glowing flames encroaching on communities. Often forgotten are the incredibly brave and skilled men and women who race toward these fires to save lives and property. THE FIRE LINE does for the Granite Mountain Hotshots what other recent books have done for our military, bringing these heroes to complex life while telling a thrilling story of danger, heroism, and adventure. It will be easy to forget you’re reading about real people and their real lives because the writing is so cinematic and evocative, but it also serves as a reminder that we collectively owe debts to the people who strive to protect us not from invasion or terrorist plots, but from Mother Nature herself.”
