About this title

Synopsis:

Wildland firefighters, especially “hotshots,” are a breed alone. It is a lifestyle many will never understand. They are dispatched throughout the Nation, always ready to work in the very worst kind of disaster. They sleep wherever it’s safe and often do not shower for weeks. So why would a young woman, reared on a Nevada cattle ranch, give up the open spaces for a life of danger? This is only one of the questions answered with humor and insight in Shawna Legarza’s memoir, No Grass. After working her way through college as a firefighter, the author was part of the World Trade Center Recovery Efforts, where she met her husband who, like Legarza, was a firefighter. When he took his own life, the author mustered a new brand of courage and formed a non-for profit program to help the many physically and emotionally wounded firefighters, too brave to ask for help. This is a passionately told story, filled with determination and hope.

About the Author:

Shawna Legarza, "Legz" as she became known throughout the wildland firefighting community, was raised on a cattle ranch in Northern Nevada. Her adventure as a cowgirl evolves into a career as a wildland firefighter. She has worked on fires throughout the United States and Canada as well as assignments at the World Trade Center Recovery Efforts, Hurricane Rita, and the Greensburg Tornado. She wrote this memoir as a personal reflection of her life only hoping to help overcome the grief of her husband's suicide. Currently, she is a Fire Management Officer for the US Forest Service. The author, who resides in Durango, Colorado, has earned three degrees--two Bachelors and a Master's Degree and is currently enrolled in a doctoral program in Psychology. This is her first book.
