Just a Few Jumper Stories is a book including 70 true stories from Rod Dow's 32 years of smokejumping in Alaska and the West. Written in a simple storytelling format, it represents smokejumping in a genuine, unpretentious way.
The author warns that "the book includes cussing, car smashing ... firefighting, and other poor choices."
