Set amid the real-life Yellowstone fires of 1988, this fictional adventure brings to life the heroic and tragic experiences of those who were called upon to fight the blaze. The story centers on firefighter Clare Chance, who has escaped to Montana to forget about a recent tragedy, and lose herself in the challenge of fighting the destructive blaze. Among the thousands of other brave professionals called to duty in Yellowstone, Chance bonds with two others—a Vietnam vet helicopter pilot and a park ranger who suffered a recent loss—who are also battling their own deep wounds.
The bravery of these characters is on full display in Jacobs’ evocative novel, as is the personal toll of being on the front lines of a natural disaster. You can continue Jacobs’ Yellowstone adventures with Rain of Fire and Lake of Fire.
