Great book, both laughed and cried

A wonderful celebration of life. This story of a volunteer fireman and EMT is the best picture of life in a small town that I have ever read. It neither patronizes nor romanticizes the lives of people in New Auburn, but allows their actions to enoble them. If you have friends overseas who want to understand the U.S., give them this book. I have given away at least 12 copies.

Anyone living in the rural mid-west (or most anywhere else in the US) should read this book. We too often take our volunteer firefighters and first responders for granted, but they are always there for us and always go above and beyond what we hope they can do. Michael Perry writes from the inside...both the inside of the volunteer community and from inside his heart. Thank you Mr. Perry and thank you volunteers everywhere.
