Young men & fire by Norman Maclean( Book )

41 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On August 5, 1949, a crew of fifteen Smokejumpers, the United States Forest Service's elite airborne firefighters, stepped into the sky above a remote forest fire in the Montana wilderness. Less than two hours after their jump, all but three of these men were dead or fatally burned. Exactly what happened in Mann Gulch that day has been obscured by years of grief and controversy. Now a master storyteller finally gives the Mann Gulch fire its due as tragedy. Norman Maclean first saw the Mann Gulch fire as it still burned in mid-August 1949, and even then he knew he would one day become a part of its story. Maclean spent the last fourteen years of his life studying and reliving the fire. Young Men and Fire is the long-awaited result, a story of Montana, of the ways of wildfires, firefighters, and fire scientists, and especially of a crew, young and proud, who "hadn't learned to count the odds and to sense they might owe the universe a tragedy." This tale is also Maclean's own, the story of a writer obsessed by a strange and human horror, unable to let the truth die with these young men, searching for the last - and lasting - word. Nature's violence collides with human fallibility in Young Men and Fire. The Smokejumpers in Mann Gulch are trapped by a "blowup," a deadly explosion of flame and wind rarely encountered and little understood at the time. Only seconds ahead of the approaching firestorm, the foreman, R. Wagner Dodge, throws himself into the ashes of an "escape fire "--And survives as his confused men run, their last moments obscured by smoke. The parents of the dead cry murder, charging that the foreman's fire killed their boys. Years later, Maclean returns to the scene with two of the survivors and pursues the mysteries that Mann Gulch has kept hidden since 1949. From the words of witnesses, the evidence of history, and the research of fire scientists, Maclean at last assembles the scattered pieces of the Mann Gulch tragedy

On August 5, 1949, a crew of 15 of the U.S. Forest Service's elite airborne firefighters, the Smokejumpers, stepped into the sky above a remote forest fire in Montana wilderness.

Unter der strengen Obhut ihres Vaters, ein presbyterianischer Priester, wachsen die Brüder Norman und Paul in der unberührten Wildnis Montanas der 30er Jahre auf. Zwei Brüder, wie sie gegensätzlicher nicht sein können: Paul, provozierend und aufsässig, Norman, ruhig und besonnen. Ihr Vater erzieht seine Söhne im Einklang mit Gott und der Natur und vermittelt ihnen die mythischen und mystischen Seiten des Lebens. Ihre gemeinsame Leidenschaft: Das Fliegenfischen am Fluss, der selbst ein Teil der Ewigkeit ist. Der Kindheit entwachsen ist Paul Jounalist geworden, verfällt dem Alkohol, macht Spielschulden und landet wiederholt im Gefängis. Der intellektuelle Norman hingegen ist zurückhaltend und träumt davon, die Welt ausserhalb Missoulas zu entdecken. Bald muss der eine Bruder die Bedeutung des Wortes Familientreue erfahren, nachdem der andere in grössere Schwierigkeiten denn je geraten ist. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
