La Grande, Ore., operated as a full-fledged smokejumper base from 1974 through 1982. It had previously operated as a spike base for 16 fire seasons.
This book records the base’s history, includes numerous photos, a complete year-by-year roster of those who jumped at the base, crew pictures, and a listing of year-by-year jumps and fires. It's a fitting tribute to the La Grande Smokejumper Base and its personnel.
Makes an outstanding gift, and is a great addition for any enthusiast of firefighting history.
