From hand pumpers to the sweeping fenders of the '30s and '40s and into the age of modern high-tech big-rigs, this colorful and nostalgic collection brings together many of the finest names in America's great firefighting tradition. Describing the evolution of the fire engine from hand pumpers to steamers to the elaborate rigs of today, Halberstadt points out all the interesting intricacies of the machines, takes readers along to fight real fires, and tells how to purchase a fire truck for $2,000, or less.
