FIGHTING FIRE A Personal Story

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Paula Parker

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

Caroline Paul's account of becoming one of San Francisco's first women firefighters contains the emotional, physical and mental challenges faced in such a situation. Capturing the intensity of each aspect of Paul's transition from new recruit to veteran squad member, Parker ably dramatizes her personal changes, as well as the changes in the firefighters who must work with her. Parker recreates the mounting excitement and terrible sadness of the fire scenes with superb clarity and realistic emotion. The strain of intense feelings, the need to help others, and the basic instinct for survival become so true to life with Parker's reading that this becomes a story never to be forgotten. P.A.J. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
