Jumping Fire

by Murry A. Taylor

Fighting fires since 1965, veteran smokejumper Murry Taylor finally retired from his legendary career after last summer-the worst fire season in more than fifty years. After three decades of parachuting out of planes and battling blazes in the vast, rugged wilderness of Alaska and the West, Taylor recounts in Jumping Fire, with passion and honesty, stories of man versus nature at its most furious and unforgiving. He shares what it's like to hear the deafening roar, to smell the acrid burn, to feel the intense heat, to breathe the thick fumes, and to finally run for your life with exploding flames two hundred feet high and a mile wide licking at your heels.Written with a keen eye for detail and a talent for storytelling, "Jumping Fire is a tale of love and loss, life and death, and sheer hard work, set in an unforgiving and unforgettable landscape, that's second only to Norman Maclean's classic Young Men and Fire" (Publishers Weekly).

Jumping Into the Parade

by Tim Brown

On the outside, it looked like Tim Brown was living the ideal life. He had risen from his hardscrabble beginnings in South Florida to a position of status and wealth in the Denver business community. He had married into an extremely prominent and well-recognized family and had built several thriving businesses. But on the inside, it was another story altogether. The ghosts of his past haunted him, relentlessly hounding him about his value as a father, friend, and business leader. His life was deceptive and spinning out of control, and it led to the darkest night of his life. From that darkness, Tim found the strength to reshape his entire life. His faith gave him the courage to "jump in the parade," a phrase his father-in-law coined to mean truly living, taking chances and being who you really want to be-not who others expect you to be. With a renewed commitment to discovering, owning, and living his values, Tim began the process of deconstructing and then reconstructing his life. Jumping in the Parade proves you don't have to remain a prisoner of your past or a victim of your present. This heartfelt and humbling story shows how anyone can find the strength to jump in the parade and live a life truly worth living if they are willing to take a hard look at living into alignment with their values.
