Book description



Superficially, Young Men and Fire is the story of fifteen elite Smokejumpers who died in Mann Gulch, Montana, in 1949. The Smokejumpers were all young men, the best of the best in their chosen profession: fighting forest fires. Yet, in Mann Gulch, theyd been overtaken by fire and died clawing at the steep grassy slopes. Really, though, this is a book about dying, and the important lessons about life that death provides. For it is death that gives life its value; it is death, or rather, the knowledge that we are all finite, that gives us our nobility - we love and work and plan as though we have forever, when in reality, the grains of sand started slipping through the hour glass from our first breath of air. Norman Maclean sets out to tell the story of Mann Gulch. To answer the question of how it couldve happened. Along the way, however, the book becomes a meditation of life: how we grow, how we die, how we learn, and how wisdom eludes us. Maclean, of A River Runs Through It fame, writes near the end:I, an old man, have written this fire report. Among other things, it was important to me, as an exercise for old age, to enlarge my knowledge and spirit so I could accompany young men whose lives I might have lived on their way to death. I have climbed where they climbed, and in my time I have fought fire and inquired into its nature. In addition, I have lived to get a better understanding of myself and those close to men, many of them now dead. Perhaps it is not odd, at the end of this tragedy where nothing much was left of the elite who came from the sky but courage struggling for oxygen, that I have often found myself thinking of my wife on her brave and lonely way to death. As I said above, the book is an examination of death, which of course entails an examination of life. Its not morbid. Well, its morbid if you think about it without thinking hard enough. Its economics, really: death is like scarcity, which increases value. Its also a common bond that keeps a disparate human race at least partially in check. As Michael Moriarty says in Bang the Drum Slowly: Everyone knows everyone else is dying. Thats why people are as good as they are. This investigation is explained by Maclean:This is a catastrophe that we hope will not end where it began; it might go on and become a story...So this story is a test of its own belief - that in this cockeyed world there are shapes and designs, if only we have some curiosity, training, and compassion and take care not to lie or be sentimental...If we could say something like this and be speaking both accurately and somewhat like Shelley when he spoke of clouds and winds, then what we would be talking about would start to change from catastrophe without a filled-in story to what could be called the story of a tragedy, but tragedy would be only a part of it, as it is of life. Maclean reconstructs the last moment of these young men. How the fire blew up along their front and forced them to run. How the wind coming down the river valley entered the gulch and became a funnel, drawing in the fire. How Foreman Wag Dodge lit a backfire in front of the oncoming firestorm, then lay down in its still warm ashes as the fire washed over him - and survived. Maclean does the whole investigative journalism bit - walking the site, taking measurements, dabbling in science. But in the end, as stated earlier, the book is about death and life and the all-important interval between the two. It is about elite young men who died too soon. More importantly, it is about the compassion to learn about these young men whose lives never got much farther than 19 or 20 or 21 years of age. Compassion, as Maclean writes, is a form of love. Indeed, it is a rather powerful form. This book is a work of compassion, to know and understand lives cut far too short; more importantly, the compassion we share knowing we all walk towards the same destination and, no matter how many friends and family and lovers we accumulate, the last step, the dying, we have to do alone. This is as far as we are able to accompany them. When the fire struck their bodies, it blew their watches away. The two hands of a recovered watch had melted together at about four minutes to six. For them, that may be taken as the end of time.
