Smokejumpers are highly-trained, specialized firefighters who leap into danger. While other firefighters battle large-scale wildfires, smokejumpers are deployed to snuff out remote fires before they become a threat. In this book, readers in grades 4-8 will dive into how smokejumpers are trained, what goes into a jump, and how they fight fires once they get there. This high interest, low reading level series gives readers an exciting photo- and fact-filled look at some of the most dangerous jobs on the planet. Each book features stand-alone spreads, so readers can flip pages and read in any order. Glossary words are defined on the page where they appear, boosting reader comprehension.
