About the Author:

Dr. Charles Palmer began wildland firefighting in 1989 on helitack and light engine crews in the Custer National Forest of Montana. In 1995 Palmer transitioned to a 10-year career as a smokejumper for the U.S. Forest Service, and since 2003 has done detail and AD work for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Palmer has worked with Mission-Centered Solutions as a private contractor, and has taught L-380 Fireline Leadership and L-381 Incident Leadership courses in the U.S., Canada, and Australia. Palmer completed his Ed.D. in 2002 and, while still fighting fires seasonally, joined the faculty of the University of Montana School of Education where he is Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Human Performance. He is married to Christine Engel, and the couple reside in Missoula with their two children, Skye and Summer.

Review:

I've been impressed by this book, and read it over the summer in spare minutes between fires. I especially like that it talks about psychological and environmental factors both within and outside the fire world for firefighters to know about and work on. Lifelong learning and being a student for life are goals leaders should shoot for. This book is essential reading for firefighters, fireline leaders, and fire managers. ---- Jed, fire management, U. S. Forest Service

I finished this book yesterday. It was money very well spent, IMO...The subject matter of the chapters is balanced by the author's personal experiences and the topics of the book are spot on in terms of what we have to do in the field. I can't say enough about how good I find the book. -- --Nathan M., a fire-fighter in Washington state
