Joseph King - The Fellowship of Fire


He wasn’t exactly playing with fire; he was conducting an experiment. With heart racing and nerves tingling, six-year old Joe King stomped out his first “wildfire” in the spring of 1954. Hooked, Joe never looked back; he’s been fighting fires and teaching others how to manage fires ever since. The Fellowship of Fire is Joe’s account of his 45-year career chasing wildfires across America. Told from his experiences and perspective, it shares the stories of the brave men and women in the wildfire community who have devoted careers and lives to this dangerous and critical work. Regional firefighters will attend as special guests for this engaging reading.
