WHAT WE’VE BEEN TRAINING FOR:

One Woman’s Memoir Of Working on a Wildland Fire Hotshot Crew (Coming Soon)Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 3.17.18 PM

In the summer of 2003, Cindy M. Bell joined an elite wildland firefighting crew, or hotshot crew. As she struggles to keep pace with the crew, she takes a hard look at the culture of debauchery, misogyny and alcoholism, and the leadership which gave rise to that culture. As it juxtaposes flash memoir pieces and longer essays, WHAT WE’VE BEEN TRAINING FOR: One Woman’s Memoir Of Working on a Wildland Fire Hotshot Crew shines a light on the shadowy realm of the Boys’ Club.
