For readers and viewers of The Perfect Storm, opening this long-awaited new work by Sebastian Junger will be like stepping off the deck of the Andrea Gail and into the inferno of a fire burning out of control in the steep canyons of Idaho. Here is the same meticulous prose brought to bear on the inner workings of a terrifying elemental force; here is a cast of characters risking everything in an effort to bring that force under control.

Few writers have been to so many desperate corners of the globe as has Sebastian Junger; fewer still have provided such starkly memorable evocations of characters and events. From the murderous mechanics of the diamond trade in Sierra Leone to the logic of guerrilla warfare in Afghanistan and the forensics of genocide in Kosovo, this new collection of Junger's nonfiction will take you places you wouldn't dream of going to on your own.

Written by Sebastian Junger. This is the point of entry to Junger's first book-length project since The Perfect Storm: a narrowly averted tragedy for Junger's family opens out into an electrifying exploration of race and justice in America. By turns exciting and subtle, the narrative chronicles three lives that collide - and are ultimately destroyed - in the vortex of one of the first and most controversial serial murder cases in America. The power of the story and the brilliance of Junger's reporting place this book on the short shelf of classics beside In Cold Blood and Helter Skelter

This fine collection of short essays by Sebastian Junger may not get the attention it deserves. Listeners will be surprised to hear that Junger's own voice and actor Kevin Conway's are almost indistinguishable.

This fine collection of short essays by Sebastian Junger may not get the attention it deserves. The eye-catching flame-covered jacket may attract list. Both give effective readings that give the sense of being "on the scene. Well worth the time, Junger's varied writings make the listener as peripatetic as the author. c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine. Retail pak, Harper Audio, 2001.

As much as I enjoy the author and his eloquent writing/ story telling this book was not at all what I expected. The first 2 chapters were about fire (excellent) the rest was a collection of war stories from across the world. I enjoyed the book but recommend it with a word of caution; this is a rather graphic and brutal collection of stories & not for the faint of heart.

This book is actually a collection of short narratives by the author about various experiences he has had;among those the one dealing with his work with forest fire fighters is the most engaging .The other articles are less entertaining and account for the fact I gave this a three star rating ,on its own the narrative about the fire fighters was a four star..F

I've always liked his writing--this did not disappoint. It is several different mini-documentaries about his journalism ventures--from fires to war-torn areas. Excellent (for me) historical information also. Does not disappoint. I look forward to reading the rest of his books..

Not quite done reading but so far, very interesting read. I was surprised when the story of the Hotshots ended and the author moved on to Kosovo, and Kashmir. Still have about 100pp left but am already a fan of the author of "A Perfect Storm" and the number of documentaries he reported.
Dogrel
Not really a novel, more a collection of Junger's short essays. If you've already read all the mainstays of this author, this book can give you that Junger fix.
If you have wondered why and how forest fires burn and how they are fought, and how men and women die fighting them, Junger gives you the answers.
