Zac Unger didn t feel like much of a fireman at first. Most of his fellow recruits seemed to have planned for the job all their lives; he was an Ivy League grad responding to an ad at a bus stop. He couldn t keep his boots shined, and he looked terrible in his uniform. Working Fire is the story of how, from this unlikely beginning, Zac Unger came to feel at home among this close-knit tribe, came to master his work s demands, and came to know what it is to see the world through a firefighter s eyes. From the raw material of his days work alarm calls both harrowing and hilarious, moments of triumph and grief Unger has forged a timeless story of finding one s path, and a rousing adventure about the bravery and sacrifice of everyday heroes.On the web: http: //www.zacunger.com "
