About the Author

Karen Magnuson Beil is an editor, journalist, photographer, teacher, mother, and author of two other books for young readers. In researching Fire in Their Eyes, she worked on burn crews for two seasons, documented a Montana smokejumper class, and interviewed dozens of people to create a close-up portrait of ordinary heroes.


Gr 5-8-A dramatic account of the training and work of a firefighter as well as the role of fire in the natural world. Every page is packed with fascinating facts that will hold readers' attention. In addition, graphic full-color photographs convey the intensity, violence, and power of fire as well as the multi-tasked operations that firefighters undertake. While this book has a wealth of information for researchers, its organization does not promote such use. Chapter headings such as "Torch!" are exciting, but don't give a clear indication of content. In fact, this chapter begins with a discussion of the uses of fire to help wildlife and woodlands. Also, the glossary is incomplete. However, the book has lots of drama and appeal, making it well suited to browsing and leisure reading.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt.
